Author's notes

I reported this bird to WIRES #1443804. On Friday it was right at the waters edge, but on Monday it was right on the stump near the bird hide and clearly had an injured right wing. It looked healthy but lethargic. It can swim. There were two other females and a male further over on the back pond. Had family visiting so not followed up yet if they got it or not. Once you get close enough to nab it it gets back in the water and swims off.

Oh, its on Lagoon 1. And it is surprisingly hard to see - even when only a foot away!
