12/14, 10:30am at Innovation Pond off of Goose Lane. 

Seems late in season, but... it was on the ground and very close.
Behavior seemed odd, as it was on the ground and walking toward the
building (I'd wondered if it had hit the building or was otherwise
injured), but then it flew to the other side of the lake, eventually
taking off for good, seeming fine.

Also two pair of Hooded Mergansers on the pond (in addition to the usual
Canada Geese and gulls.
