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.
