The bird disappeared for almost three hours but was refound at 11:10 by Barb Crowell. She found it about 85m along the trail on the right hand side near its usual roosting spot. This is directly across from the gray cottage with vertical boards and the Natural Restoration sign. It caught and swallowed a frog to the delight of the 18 birders present. Last seen at 11:30 going into the willow, presumably to digest its meal.

Step over/around the dilapidated dock, onto the mud and look to the right (north) low along the shoreline.  It spends a lot of time hunting from the roots of fallen trees, often within 2 to 3 feet from the ground. It’s usually 35 to 60m away.  A scope isn’t necessary but does provide better views.
