My husband and I birded Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve (nice morning), Wee Thump Wilderness Area (Gilded Flickers seen there) and Cottonwood Cove, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, today, and the day saved the best for last.
An immature BROWN BOOBY was first observed along a walkway railing just to the right of the boat ramp (which is straight down Cottonwood Cove Road, there is dry land parking to the left). I was able to get good photographs of this bird before it was flushed by a visiting family; the booby flew to one of the house boats moored in the marina. When all was clear, the bird came back to the walkway (more photos). It was flushed once again, and landed further away on a structure just down the walkway. It doesn’t feel like it was going anywhere this evening, so good luck to all of you who might search tomorrow!
