Subject: [ia-bird] Black Scoters at Hawkeye Wildlife Area
At sunrise I scoped a distant 3 juv./female BLACK SCOTERS from the DNR headquarters parking lot. At that time scoping was good except for the dim light but
backlighting would have been a problem later. After the noon hour the scoters were absent when I rechecked the spot.

Also seen from the parking lot were 21 COMMON LOONS which must be the high count for Hawkeye. And occasionally they could be heard.
