I birded both lakes today, yesterday, and day before yesterday. Saw and photographed a pair of WW Scoters yesterday at Overholser and saw these today ~1/4 mile south of the fishing pier. Lots of scaup & C-Goldeneye, did not find the reported Black Scoters and did not look for the Mute Swan below the dam.
Found the RN Grebe today north of the 2nd fishing pier as you drive toward Lake Hefner north of the harbor. Looked for the LT Duck north of Stars & Stripes Park and did not see it. Lots of Horned Grebe at Prairie Dog Point, did not see any Eared Grebe this week. You will find several Common Loon, yet to locate the reported Pacific Loon. I'm using binoculars only, no scope (own two !).
