A group of 8 OSU Bird Nerds and a couple of folks from Willamette University located the Tufted Duck this morning at Ankeny NWR's Pintail Marsh. It was diving constantly at the far end of the marsh, so spotting scopes were a necessity. Immature male, resembling female LESC with no white at base of bill. Brownish overall, slightly lighter colored sides. Diving frequently at far end of the marsh. Other highlights included lots of Tree Swallows and Violet-green Swallow, Dunlin, and Lincoln's Sparrow.
