Sorry I was unable to post earlier. Today my phone decided it didn’t know me.
The Parasitic Jaeger was present from 11 this morning until at least 12:30. When I arrived, two birders were already watching the bird sitting on the lawn adjacent the swim beach. While I was watching and photographing, a toddler walked over to the Canada Geese that were next to the jaeger and it decided to leave, but flew only 20 m down to the cobble beach. It stayed there for a few minutes until bothered enough by the mallards that it took flight, first heading south, then circling back to land on the swim platform. Several people started showing up for this first occurrence at Magnuson. Most left after getting good scope views. When it was just me and John Puschock, the jaeger decide to once again fly off the platform to rest on the lawn.
