2/12/15-Fairfield -Sunken Island-adult male Harlequin Duck continues to the right of bell buoy 22 with White-winged Scoters.Seen from "the turn around" at 2182 Fairfield Beach Rd. Scope required. Viewing conditions are very good now,very light winds and Sunken Island is not exposed.The Harlequin Duck is actively feeding but easily visible with a scope.
Tips for not missing the duck:
Come early and don't come when it's windy. Try to avoid a dead low tide as the duck may be on the south side of Sunken Island and you will not see it.
BTW,I have been here to check on the Harlequin Duck and hoping to find a King Eider or even a Pacific Loon.It's a great spot!
