I've been at Fort Trumble for the last two hrs looking
 for the pacific loon. I see there are a few COMMON LOONS off in the 
distance but too far for me to see if there is a P. Loon mixed in. I see
 one in the distance in front of a yellow crane off to the left but I 
think it's just wishful thinking :-)
So far I've seen:
About 10 RED BREASTED MERGANSERS
2-3 GREATER SCAUPS mixed in with 6-7 LESSER SCAUPS
A pair of HOODED MERGANSERS 
And a few common loons, as mentioned
Also worth mentioning I stopped by the Mystic River bridge and saw about 50 HOODED MERGS. Neat sight.
Off to Harkness!!
