In today’s installment of “Mystery Creatures at Haserot Beach” (at least it’s not dead like this one), I give you this mystery bird that was perched on a mooring buoy in Old Mission Harbor.
We spotted the bird as we pulled into Haserot Beach on our daily drive around the OMP a couple days ago. It’s a fairly large bird with brown feathers, a long tail, and a long yellow beak that hooks a little at the end.

Here’s a close-up of its head. My camera was being grouchy that day, so the photos are a little grainy.
Here are a few more pics – also grainy. The last one is the grainiest, but you can see that when he puts his head in a certain position, he’s sporting sort of an Elvis look.
If you know what this mystery bird is, tell us in the comments section at the bottom of this story.
