As of 11:00 the harlequin and goldeneyes had moved to the island on the
left, feeding off the rocks at the left edge. Not quite the close look
Terry had earlier but still there. Ted Murin first saw it yesterday, so
maybe it will hang out for a while. We also spotted 12 red necked grebes
off the point.

Subject: [VTBIRD] HARLEQUIN DUCK
First thing this AM there was a drake HARLEQUIN DUCK, in full dress, at
Shelburne point. The bird was in close to the bay across the road from
the shipyard, feeding with a small group of common goldeneye (and one
hen barrows goldeneye). What a bird!
