The adult male SURF SCOTER found by the Malone's yesterday at Riverlands Mig. 
Bird Sanctuary (St. Charles County) continued this afternoon.  My best photos 
from 300+ yards here:

The bird was hanging out with 3 Ruddy Ducks and a single late Canvasback in 
Ellis Bay (across from Heron Pond).  This appears to be the 3rd latest spring 
Surf Scoter record.  

I tried hard to turn at least 14 Forster's Terns into Commons, but they were all 
pretty clearly Forster's.  A single Black Tern, mabye 2, were also 
present.  Didn't stay too long in order to get back to Mother's Day activities.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there.
