Got word of this bird when I was out of town for Thanksgiving. I prayed to the bird gods for it to stay put and survive for the next three days until I was back in town. I went down this morning before class and spotted him just after sunrise! Such a cute little guy! And boy did he put on a show! Diving for food within 10 feet of us in clear water mere feet from the shoreline, allowing us to see them hunt underwater! Lifer #393!!!

I was after this long-tailed Duck yesterday, but before I went to sleep, I had only gone through 700 out of my 1,100 photos and hadn't yet found it.  This morning, after looking at around 50 more pics, I found what I was looking for:

I'm about to embed an Imgur picture, because the normal Macaulay Library browser trick to drag the photo URL to the title bar isn't working for wither of my Long-tailed Ducks pics.  Anybody else having this issue with my two photos of the species?
