Long-tailed Duck - Ten Mile
- Four people (Becky, Angela, Jim and myself) all looked Thursday
for the LTDU without any luck. But, this morning (6/23)I saw him
at his usual spot on the sandy, south bank of the river west of the
Also, I saw another out-of-season duck at the mouth of the river -
a non-breeding Red-breasted Merganser. This bird was present
yesterday, but I could not get a good look from the bridge. It was
seen by the others yesterday, but no conclusion as to species
was made. But this morning, I went down towards the river mouth,
and a non-breeding Red-breasted Merganser swiftly swam by on
its way to the nearby ocean. I have seen numerous RBME on
Morro Bay and inner coastal waters, and this bird looks much more
like a Red-breasted than a juvenile Common Merganser.
