Hi all,

I had a neat drake hybrid tufted duck x scaup in Falmouth this AM. Original=
ly he was at a distance with a large flock of 500 or so scaup in Perch
Pond.=
A boat then flushed the flock which headed SW. I figured they might end u=
p on Little Pond and so headed that way. After a little searching I
turned h=
im up again and got some nice close looks and photos. There are multiple va=
ntage points onto Little Pond from side streets west of Maravista Ave.
if an=
yone wants to try for this bird.

Ebird list is here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S63134380

Good birding,
