Seen on north bank from viewing platform, then flew to near bank under bushes where difficult to see but perched foraging there. Noted dark crown, some white coming encircling the bottom of the cheek. Otherwise streaky appearance on front, although back is beginning to be all grayish. Not sure of age but probably not a juvenile, although immature."
