Late this afternoon (12-8) I went to Carters Lake and the two
White-winged Scoter and the 4 Red-breasted Merganser were still present.
There was an Eared Grebe associating with two Horned Grebes. There were
at least 14 Horned Grebes, but only one Bonaparte's Gull.
There was a single Common Goldeneye and one Common Loon. These birds
were viewed from the Powerhouse Boat Launch area and from the beach area
halfway between Reservoir Road and this spot. I walked the beach area
from Reservoir Road toward the Powerhouse Boat Launch. The water level
There were other ducks on the Reservoir late in the afternoon. There
were 8 Hooded Merganser and a number of Ring-necked Duck as well as
Lesser Scaup and a few Mallards.
