We worked a bit on this bird for the correct ID. The lighting was playing tricks on us giving us the impression of COME which would be more common for this time of year. But as we were looking through the scope, we had nice detailed views of this bird. A vibrant reddish orange bill that is thin and slightly upturned. No white chin patch like seen in wintering female/Common Merganser. Eye color noted. Spotted from bird feeders with bench at the start of the birding trail before the stairs. It could possibly be the same bird seen in Tucson just recently.

We didn't get a pic but we certainly did get a clear view of the bird banking quickly along the shore. It had a brownish dark back. Too large to be a BCNH and too small to be a GBHE. Seen in flight TWICE by bench and bird feeders before heading down the stairs. There was also a BCNH in the area as well. It flushed twice because there was a boater right below us along the reeds. A rare but expected bird for this area for this time of year.
