I went to Seaside Park and Beardsley Park this afternoon in search of

I was able to relocate the TUFTED DUCK in the large Scaup flock off of
Fayerweather Lighthouse. This flock also held at least six REDHEADS.

gull. I was hoping to find a roosting flock gulls as I did earlier in
January. I was however pleased when I saw four WOOD DUCKS in the fading
