Nov. 4, 2012 There were at least six Surf Scoters on Clear Lake today. There were three at the outlet of Kelsey Creek in Clear Lake State Park at the same location where Chuck Vaughn first observed two on Oct. 21. From the outlet, the scoters were beyond the small islands to the east. Also at the outlet today were more than 200 American White Pelicans and three Dunlin.
There were also three Surf Scoters in Clear Lake offshore from the 3rd St. Pier at Library Park in downtown Lakeport. Brad Barnwell had found one scoter in that location on Oct. 30.
