Pat and I watched two Long-tailed ducks at the Tarentum Bridge around noon today. They were feeding just upstream from the bridge, and would occasionally fly a short distance up river and commence diving again. Eventually we lost track of them. They blended in with the water color and were difficult to spot at times. We first saw them when they flew a short distance. The peregrine was perched on the upstream side of the bridge.
