>      The Tufted Duck was relocated today but NOT on Lake Springfield. It
is
> at the Buffalo Sewer Pond which has no access but you can view the duck
from
> the roadside. This pond can be reached by going east of Spfld., on Rt. 72
to
> exit 114 (Buffalo/Mechanicsburg Exit)- go south a short distance to the
> water tower and turn right (back west)- then go over 1 mile to 11.5 E and
2N
> (North Fork Road X Water Tower Road). The fenced-in area on the SW corner
is
> the Buffalo Sewer Pond. Go south on North Fork Road until you can see the
> pond. DO  NOT  GET  OUT  OF  YOUR  CAR - AS YOU WILL FLUSH THE DUCKS. View
> the ducks through the fence from your car. There is not much traffic but
> watch for cars as this is on a hill.
>
>      Notice the dark female-type (it is probably a female) with a
noticeable
> but short tuft. It also has white undertail coverts, dark upper surface
with
> brownish flanks, a wide bill with dark leading edge, a bright orange eye,
no
> white on face.
>
>      I am not sure but I assume that these birds fly into Lake Spfld. in
the
> evening, so after 4:00  or 4:30 the ducks may not be at the sewer pond.
> Also, sometimes a workman is at the pond and consequently the ducks are
> often chased off.
