Around 9:30 this morning there was a single WHITE-WINGED SCOTER (looked like
a female or young male) seen from Brown¹s Beach at Lake McDonough (aka The
Compensating Reservoir). The Scoter was loosely hanging out with a small
flock of Lesser Scaup. Further out there was a huge mixed flock of more
then 100 Hood Mergansers and Scaup (and probably some other stuff) but with
no scope and my 3 kids jumping in the mud I wasn¹t able to get an accurate
count of individual species. If anyone is in the area this might be worth a
closer look many birds out there!
