I saw a male and female from west beach, just west of Stern’s Wharf, loosely associating with 12 Surf Scoters and one Lesser Scaup. One was still present (a male) on 24 January, with 26 Surf Scoters. An immature male was reported from this location by Dave Compton on 26 December 2006, and this single bird was recorded on the Santa Barbara CBC on 31 December.

Description: Male with rounded head, peaking at the front. Female also with rounded head, and with a large white patch in front of bill as well as a pale cheek patch, characteristic of a female of this species in winter plumage.
