Here is the latest pin from eBird Checklist with the Tufted Duck on it.

44.541924,-92.388397

Again, if you put those coordinates into Google Maps, it will take you to the pin.

Best of luck,
Alex

No information as to what ducks it was feeding with was given, but I would assume it is the same flock as it has been with for the past few days: hundreds of Goldeneye and Mergansers, and associating with 2 female Greater Scaup, 1 male Greater Scaup, and 1 male Lesser Scaup. Also present yesterday was 1 female Bufflehead.
