Re: [wsbn] Surf Scoter
- Bob B's surf scoter was in the South pond on the Redlands Pkwy today at about 10:30 am, along with the red-crested pochard. The scoter may move between this pond and another place daily. On the north side of the road, the denuded pond, was a snowy egret and two lesser yellowlegs.

Subject: [wsbn] Hummingbirds still in Grand Jct.
Larry Arnold, who is still in Idaho, just called and asked me to pass on this info. Missy, who is in Grand Junction, still has one or two Black-chinned Hummingbirds at their feeders. There may be a few hummers out there yet so if you haven't taken down your feeders keep a lookout as there may be a stray or two still around.
Brenda and I were in Grand Junction yesterday and visited the banding station. We had just enough time to bird a few waterholes. We did see the male Red-crested Pochard but did not see the Surf Scoter. The only other bird of interest was a Long-billed Dowitcher in Unaweep Canyon at the large reservoir near the divide.
