[wisb] Re: FW: Eurasian Wigeon in Grant Co.

Hey all,
My wife and I got great looks through the scope at 40 power just a few minutes 
ago (8:05 AM)! The bird is best viewed from River Lane Rd just before a little 
gravel pull off. The bird was still with puddle ducks, about 1000 of them. It 
took us an hour but we did find the breeding plumbaged drake on the 
southernmost tip of the long island that extends from the point south. The 
train tracks run right past the road and the birds. We were able to find the 
bird before a train came by and spooked all the birds causing them to fly out 
into the channel. We haven't taken the time to sort the 1000 of puddle ducks 
again for a picture but they are slowly swimming back to the point. I'm sure 
its still there.
Back to work,

Thanks for posting this Danny. I was going to wait til I had heard it was 
sticking around since it was such a long distance from most people. I'll be 
down there Sat morning to check.
