Tufted Duck/Lake County
- This morning there was an adult male Tufted Duck in Clear Lake seen
from mile marker 18.67 on Hwy. 20 just east of Lucerne. The duck has
a moderately long and quite evident tuft about half the length of the
back of the head. It was associated with a group of about 150 scaup
that were just offshore. It is likely this is the same Tufted Duck
that has spent a portion of the last two winters near this location.
