While the Pacific Ocean is anything but pacific, the Three Oaks Sewage ponds are generally pretty calm. Tim found a Pacific Loon there a few days ago. I ran down before a family obligation, spent about 10 minutes and dashed, fairly reminiscent of the White-faced Ibis of a few years ago.
Pacifics have a contrastingly pale gray back of the head, a feature that can stand out at a long distance.
Not so much with the jaw stripe, you have to be fairly close to see it.
I think this is the first photographed Pacific in Berrien, though I could be mistaken about this.
The previously alluded to computer problems turned out to be a crashed motherboard, I'm experimenting here with a new computer, a new operating system, and new photo editors, I'm guessing it'll take some time to get them dialed in.
