The best bird of this weekend was a Surf Scoter that we saw in a pond we check in our normal birding area. This is not a normal bird to see around here. This is a sea duck. Not a duck you see inland normallly. What ever brought this adult male into our area is ok with me. It was great fun to see it. It is an all black duck except for these colorful bits I have shown. Have you ever seen one?
