For the Field Guide group. I originally used this shot in a diptych www.flickr.com/photos/anitagould/378791604/ , the pose being perfect, but it was one of my 2 best shots of the bird and showed the yellow underwing (underflipper?) of this underrepresented endangered species, so I wanted to add it to the Field Guide group. Apparently the diptych didn't pass muster there (which is fine; just wish I'd had a response to my note when the photo was axed so I would have known to upload a plain version). So here it is by itself, cropped a little more. There is a small population of these that come ashore for the night at this site. This one passed ~15 meters from us. The DOC warden watching over them said that the species is normally extremely wary, but they have become accustomed to people watching quietly from the trail at this site.
