Huge thanks and congratulations to Bruce Nott who located thirteen Black Scoters on Lake Washington today. Bruce gave me a call, as did John Haas to alert me about the birds. Luckily, Tricia and I were in Beacon and were able to stop by our way home. We got very good looks in Bruce’s scope and I was able to take a few photos that are distant and backlit, but still helpful I think. Thanks again Bruce – nice one!

  1. Matt,
    I wish they would stay until tomorrow, they would be a new county bird for me. At any rate, congratulations to Bruce on a great find, and you and Tricia for getting to see them, John
