This colony is on the north east side of the lake, difficult to see even with a scope. Unable to detect nesting, food carrying or sex ratio.
Most birds appear to be quickly dropping into the brown reeds.

Observation was from Hwy 138. One needs to walk around the lake or get permission from the cement company which controls the road on the NE side of the lake.
