First found by Mary Cay Burger Sunday 10/22. The scoter was still where she described it in the Southwest portion of the Reservoir. It was swimming in and amongst a flock of Gadwalls, Buffleheads. Lesser Scaups, Ruddys, Hooded Merganser and Common Mergansers.
Flocks of Tree Sparrows have also arrived, indicting the arrival of northern wanderers will start happening soon.
