Black Scoters - Ward Ave, Cleone
- Fri, 2 Nov 2012 -- Four, adult male BLACK SCOTERS have arrived at the north
end of Ward Avenue, Cleone. Having checked this spot several times lately,
today I saw 3-4 flocks of scoters flying south from my window. I drove directly
to Ward Avenue and scoped the (now) larger groups of Surf Scoters. While there,
I noticed an adult male WHITE-WINGED SCOTER fly south with another flock
of scoters. I hoped for, but did not see any Long-tailed Duck(s).
A COOPER'S HAWK was swooping low over the beach below, chasing a flock of
Ward Avenue is a very, short distance north of the main entrance to MacKerricher
State Park on Hwy 1, north of Fort Bragg.
