High Count: 10
9 pigus on edge of water, calling loudly when I first arrived. All were facing the water. They didn't fly away until I got within about 30 feet of them. 7:03 - 8 pigus in water off of site D. 7:07 9 in the water. 7:15 10 pigus on water/water edge. 7:30 5 flew along the beach.
As i was setting up, a Pigu flew towards Burrow 2 two times. Luckily for the survey he waited until 8:02 to enter. He sat on the ledge starting at 7:59 before entering the burrow. At 8:30 there were 2 pigus in the water well beyond Site D. Lots of crows and gulls wandering the beach.
1 PIGU on water, diving at 7:13. Grebe(? later decided it was a loon) floted by at 7:15. Kingfisher on pole in water at 7:19. 4 PIGU on water beyond site D for quite awhile. 1 flew past D and a few minutes later the other 2 floated into my site. PIGU Fly-by at 7:53. No burrow visits or attempted visits during my hour.
7:32 - there was a Pigu with a perch in the water in front of Site C.
7:40 - 8 Pigus in a straight line in the water in front of C. One flew past my site (D) at 7:44.
8:19 - 3 adults and one juvenile near Site C. The juvenile flew off by itself at 8:22. Juvenile was too far away to get a good picture.

7:15 - Pigu w/gunnel just beyond Site D. Bobbed his head in and out of water while holding gunnel in beak. 3 others flew in and left. Original Pigu either dropped or ate the gunnel.
