1x1 count, and you can bet I missed a bunch of them.

duck sp.

Bare-bones minimum; perhaps many more. Too far out for study (or interest); we focused on the mergansers and gulls.

One was an adult or near-adult bird that I did not get on; seen by Rick. He mentioned the quite dark "mantle" and white head. I saw and studied in detail a first- or second-cycle, mainly in flight out over the lake. In flight: dark wings, gray back, prominent black tail band and whitish upper tail coverts and rectrix bases; lanky, long-winged look overall. On the water, again lanky and long, with pale head conspicuously pin-headed. I'm pretty sure there were two first/second-cycle birds, but we'll leave it at the one, well-studied bird.

Roadside birds; we stopped to ID both. Both were characteristically short-tailed and stub-billed (relative to Northern), with (relatively) dark and contrasting plumage.
