It was a beautiful day at the fill and I couldn't of asked for more. I was only scanning the water for about 15 minutes or so when the TUFTED DUCK came around the corner on the East side. He was no further than 10-15 yards! It was such an incredible view of this bird, probably a once in a life time look. I was able to watch him for a little while with about 5 other people around around 4:00pm.
I spent the remainder of the time at the Fill with Woody Wheeler and we must of had a good 45+ species on the day. The highlights were:
Tufted Duck- very close in!
Canvasback- a good dozen at least
Redhead- I'd say about 6 or 7 visible
Barrow's Goldeneye- very reliable, right of the bridge over the slough
Eurasian Wigeon- 3 individuals
Northern Pintail- 5 or so along the bank
Sharp-Shined Hawk- perched and was very calm
All in all it was a spectacular day! Here is my Flickr link with updated pictures of the TUFTED DUCK from today 2/6/12.
