  2. Number observed: 1

    Comments: When I first saw this duck through binos, it was with 2 larger ducks and was diving constantly. Of note was the stiff, long tail seen when bird dove. Plumage was brown with what appeared to be a whitish throat and belly. Five min later I was viewing it through my scope. Bird was grooming, preening, stretching and flapping wings. There seemed to be some white on wing primaries seen when preening. There was some prominent flash of white in the area of the 'wing pit' - 020 jpg. altho. the underside of the wing was dark.
