Lots hunting and diving in what looked like pretty shallow water, out past a sand bar.
Very rare on Pacific Coast. Distant view.
This was a state bird for me . Hank Fabian was able to photograph it as it was flying northward . The tide was rather high at the time ( 11:22 AM ) . This is a very rare bird , but it has been heavily documented by birders .
Single gannet patrolled back and forth.
