Jim Danzenbaker is just called. The BLACK SCOTER is currently on the Washington side of the Columbia River directly across from Broughton Beach (9:45 AM). There is a spit just to the east of the large orange-signed channel markers where he is standing. The Black Scoter and two of the Surf Scoters (female types) are near these channel markers. He also saw the Tufted Duck earlier in the same area.
The Black Scoter is near the scaup flock, though not as close to the shoreline as the scaup which are hugging the shoreline.
