A Surf Scoter was associated with a mixed species raft of ducks at Alma Waster Treatment Facility today. This appears to be a female just starting molt into first spring plumage. Other waterfowl species included: Gadwall (2), Blue-winged Teal (5), Northern Shov eler (75), Northern Pintail (1), Green-winged Teal (1), Canvasback (3), Ring-necked Duck (35), Lesser Scaup (28), and Ruddy Duck (5). It was a pretty calm scene until an adult Bald Eagle flew over.
