The last few days have been relatively slow lake-watching from Myers and
other areas. Yesterday's rain did not drop anything particularly noteworthy
down in the spots I was able to check. Highlights yesterday were two male
LONG-TAILED DUCKS flying north past Myers and a DUNLIN on the spit.
Yesterday a little after noon, I stopped at Stewart Park and had a large
flock of about 55 BLACK SCOTERS wheeling over the lake far to the north,
but they never came closer and I lost them in the waves. Both Surf and
White-winged scoters continue off the east end of the park, as well as a
few coots and a male Bufflehead.
This morning, three BUFFLEHEAD and three WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS were about
the only waterfowl moving off Myers, but a DUNLIN continued on the spit, an
immature BONAPARTE'S GULL spent some time sitting with the other gulls, and
a female BLACK SCOTER was diving with two White-winged Scoters and a
Greater Scaup not far off the marina.
