Today about 1:00 pm I observed a female long-tailed duck from the Vincent
Road boat ramp in Hamilton County. The bird was diving with a large flock
of common goldeneyes and buffleheads. Except for one preening session, the
bird kept diving and was hard to keep track of.
I was joined by Bruce Dralle and Dan Jacobsen and we refound the bird
farther up river.
The bird eventually flew up river, following the goldeneye flock upriver.
