Long-tailed Duck, Hagg Lake, OR (10/25/09)

Ian Boustead and I found a female LONG-TAILED DUCK with a flock of 11 Surf Scoters at Hagg Lake this afternoon. This flock was first noted off the parking area on the south end of the dam, then again scoped from Rec Area A and just west of it. A scope might be necessary to see this bird.

Also interesting were a first-winter BONAPARTE’S GULL and a late Osprey.


Thanks to Ian Boustead for allowing me to post his picture here.
