We found the female BLACK SCOTER in with the large raft of ducks nearest to 
the Observation tower AFTER it was observed by Cowan and Bailey.
It continues to favor that general corner of Ellis Bay.

BTW......a large number of swans were out in the fields between Coral Island 
Road and Red School Road.
They were quite a distance from Coral Island and we could not see them from 
Red School due to them being obscured by a ridge of land.

The female black scoter was still at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary 
Saturday afternoon. The bird was hanging out by itself along the riprap at 
the dam end of Ellis Bay. About 4 p.m., it flew with a small flock of ducks 
and couldn't be re-located it. Bob Bailey counted 63 Horned Grebes and four 
Common Loons in Ellis Bay. About 50 Snow Geese flew over.
