disturbance - 0:00 other (End) For the past 7-10 days there has been ongoing maintenance of the ferry loading bridges and surrounding structure. This involves cleaning, blasting, and painting the steel structures. I asked one of the contractor's workers if they have removed or cleaned out any nests. He replied that there were two baby seagull chicks that were called in to WSDFW for removal and care. He was not aware of any PIGU disturbances directly. All work is performed under various F&W permits and inspections.

survey.note - Only observed a total of 3 PIGU
