Lost Bridge South is indeed a recreational area located on Beaver Lake in northwest AR. I am sorry, I should have specified for our friends in other regions. My family and I enjoyed great views of this bird yesterday until it finally took flight and followed the lake to the west. At one point, it was feeding very actively along the rocky shoreline of a narrow cove to the east of the picnic areas.
I posted two terrible, yet diagnostic, photos on eBird last night (Benton County). An eBird post by Nancy Felker (January 21) also reported a male Long-tailed Duck on Beaver Lake not too terribly far from my sighting. This may very well be the same bird. I hope it sticks around for others to see. Karen Garrett, Joe Neal, and perhaps others found Long-tailed Ducks at Beaver last winter.
