On my way to Fort Garland this AM (11/13), I stopped at the Blanca Sewage Lagoon but did not find Mark Peterson's Mexican Duck. Returning in middle to late afternoon, I had these results:
1 Mexican Duck - east end of Smith Reservoir but not at the Sewage Lag. in AM or PM
2 imm. Hooded Mergansers - west end, Smith Res.
1 White-winged Scoter - in grass near water, east side. Graciously raised wings to view
4 Double-crested Cormorants.
+ remarkablet number of of Buffleheads
All else was ordinary.
