If anyone sees the Tufted Duck today, could you please let everyone know? I'll try to see it tomorrow if it's still around. Thanks!

Here is the latest pin from eBird Checklist with the Tufted Duck on it.
Again, if you put those coordinates into Google Maps, it will take you to the pin.
Best of luck,

>> It was still present at 11:25 and actively feeding. 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.
>> Best of luck trying to view this bird. Unless a collector comes forward and says he’s missing a Tufted Duck, this bird behaviorally and physically is perfect for a wild bird and would represent a first state record for both Minnesota and Wisconsin, where it has been seen in days prior.
