Gerry Janz checked Lake DuBay in the late afternoon and found the following influx: ----- This evenings after-work stop along the Lake Dubay dam turned up over 400 waterfowl on the flowage including; 12 Long-tailed ducks, 8 White-winged scoters and 3 Surf scoters. Other birds of note included 15 Horned grebes, 65 Red-breasted mergansers and 3 Common loons. The remainder of the ducks were split about 65/35% between Scaup and Redheads. Gerry Janz ------ Checking DuBay in the morning I had Scaup, Redheads and Horned Grebe for a total 75 birds. I sensed today would be a good day but needed to be in to work. I did have a Snow Bunting. If past experience is any guide these birds will be gone by morning. -- --------------------------------------------- Joe Schaufenbuel 5676 Regent St. Stevens Point Portage County, WI 54481 (715) 345-2788 "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!'
