Lake Parsippany (no Scoter), Morris County; Morris List updates 12-2-2011

From Tim Vogel:

Unfortunately yesterday’s traffic prevented me from driving by. I would love to have seen the scoter.
December 2, 2011
Common Loon 1
Hooded Merganser 4
Common Merganser 5
Ruddy Duck 3

Both Jamie Glydon and Mike Wolfe also reported seeing the Common Loon this morning but yesterday’s White-winged Scoter was not found.

This is the second record of White-winged Scoter in Morris County in 2011. On April 23, 4 were seen (2 drakes, 2 hens) on Lake Musconetcong by Tom Halliwell and Jonathan Klizas.

Note: The List of the Birds of Morris County has some updates courtesy of more records furnished by David Harrison. The species count is adjusted to 311.
