Thanks to Richard for getting the word out about the Scoters and Mergansers.  
Both sets of birds were still present today at the same locations as originally 
described.  The probable Western Grebe was not relocated, but instead there 
were two Red-throated Loons at Seven Points - one was still in winter plumage, 
and the other bird was molting into breeding plumage - they were seen straight 
out from the boat ramp among several Common Loons.  Other notable birds at 
Seven Points included at least 12 Common Goldeneye, several Herring Gulls, two 
Bald Eagles and a Merlin.

 birds of note from today at Priest Lake:
 Elm Hill
 MarinaWHITE-WINGED SCOTERS - 10, a few adult
 males plus females and sub adults, in with a mixed group of
 ducks including Can's & Redheads.This is
 in a side slough accessed from Elm Hill Rec Area, this area
 not usually open in the winter but open because of some
 on-going construction.
 Hamilton Creek marina
 large mixed group of ducks, reported from last Sunday by
 Mike Smith, is still there - Canvasbacks, Readheads,
 Ring-necked Ducks, and scaup etc. Probably some Greater
 Scaup in this mix, but I did not make the effort to tease
 any out.
