Hello, I was driving along Newport Back Bay at approximately 11am and sighted a Magnificient Frigatebird circling over the cliffs. After it circled, it headed South East and then I lost it. I'm assuming this is the same bird that was seen at Bolsa Chica this morning. Large black bird with long forked tail and white chest. I have a couple of very distant and blurry photos that I posted on my eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38923803
