7 Surf Scoters at Lake Murray (3/14/20)
Of local interest, I was surprised to see 7 SURF SCOTERS (5 males + 2 females) this morning at Lake Murray.
Surf Scoters are casual inland and it's quite rare to have this many (nearly all reports are in March but usually only 1-2 individuals).
Dan Jehl and Kathryn Wendel arrived a bit later and the flock was still loafing in the middle of the lake (out near San Carlos / Cowles Points looking out from the boat dock) until at least 10:30am or so when I departed.
