The huge scaup flock that spent the Winter off the South Hero (Allen Point)
causeway is now in King Bay in Champlain, New York. They can be seen from
Route 9B. There are still thousands of scaup (both species) in this flock. I
scanned the flock for about 25 minutes today looking for the Drake Tufted
Duck. No luck. However, the scaup were scattered all over the Bay so the
Tufted Duck could still be out there somewhere. It's worth checking if you
happen to go up that way.
