When we arrived at 7:30 and for next 1/2 hour, a pair was in front of the burrows, about 40 ft offshore singing and staying close together. Pigus near the mooring floats were competing with the DC cormorants for floats and were twice chased off floats by them. At both 7:55 & 8:25, 4 pigus were seen.
Lots of activity in the area with other birds: 21 common mergansers, lots of cormorants, 11 western sandpipers frequently circling, gb heron fly overs, and martens and rough-winged swallows feeding near pigus.
2 PGs at A at 07:45. 4 in front of B at 7:52. 5 in front of B at 07:59. At mid-count, 1 in front of A, 6 in front of B. 4 in front of A at 08:11. 7 in front of A at 08:14 (High Count). 6 in front of A at end.

disturbance - 7:40 dog
End time: 7:45. Loud walker with dog. Pigu stopped singing and moved farther from shore.
No burrow visits, although one was in front of the burrow (in water) when I arrived and singing. It was present most of the observation.
From where I was sitting, I could see that burrow visits were happening at Site B at: 7:49,7:56 (appeared to have a gunnel), & 8:14.

Tide was way out, so all counted birds at A were near the buoys. 1 PG @7:43, appears to be a fledgling, but hard to see exact coloring (at A).
6 near powder dock.5 @A @8:05 (mid count). 5 by powder dock--one possible fledgling.
6 @A @08:05 (end point), 5 by powder dock.
