The mixed flock of scoters reported by Jim Mead was still present at 9 A/M this morning. 

This afternoon I counted 9 White-winged Scoters at Colchester Pond. Other birds of interest included a Common Loon transitioning out of breeding plumage and a Red-necked Grebe.

Hello all,

All 3 Scoter species are here now. I am looking at 21 Black Scoters, 9 White-winged Scoters and 6 Surf Scoters.

Good luck if you try for them. 

Enjoy Birds,

Jim Mead
