Nadine and I visited the Ponca Lakes today. We found the Long-tailed Duck and the 7
Trumpeter Swans but we did not find the White-winged Scoter.
There were thousands of waterfowl, maybe over 10,000 birds mostly on the ice and in some
limited areas of open water on both the east and west lakes.
The scoter probably was there and we just didn't find it.

Subject: [OKBIRDS] Lake Ponca Trumpeter Swans, White-winged Scoter, Long-tailed Duck
Today found 7 Trumpeter Swans at the edge of the ice in the far northwest end of Lake Ponca, also observed by the Bashams. Many Candada and Cackling Geese in the same area and some Snow, Ross's and Greater White-fronted. Off of the east dam found a Long-tailed Duck and also the White-winged Scoter reported by Ben Sandstrom on Jan 14.
An eBird checklist for the complete circuit of the lake is here, http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41974907.
