A large number of divers (especially Scaup) had moved onto Smithville Lake
this morning. Among a raft of maybe 3000 birds near the dam, there were:

Common Loon - 10
Pied-billed Grebe - 15
Horned Grebe - 8
Gadwall - 100s
American Wigeon - a few
Mallard - 50
Northern Shoveler - 50
Northern Pintail - a few
Canvasback - 15
Redhead - 10
Ring-necked Duck - 50
Lesser Scaup - 1000 (didn't sort through for Greater)
Ruddy Duck - 1000

I was unable to find any Western Grebes near the dam (which is the only place
I looked).
