Birded near gate, along causeway, and out into Long Cove. After seeing a large number of ducks in Long Cove I went into the cove, along the shore approx. .3 miles from the Sears Island road, and spent much of my time there for a closer look.

Observations

  1. Number observed: 22
  2. Number observed: 14

    Details: Scanned through these and the other ducks for close to an hour with 32x77mm scope. Close comparisons with GWTE and single shoveler. All birds with brownish or brownish-gray bodies; white at base of bill with some forming fairly obvious cresents; lack of horizontal buffy streak in tail; very slightly longer bodied than GWTE; blue wing coverts obvious when birds took flight due to an eagle passing over.
