After a Tufted Duck was reported yesterday on Long Island I did some figuring and realized that I could go find the bird this morning before work and still, provided traffic wasn’t totally horrific, get to work in New Jersey on time.
So I headed out to Huntington Harbor, ran into Anthony Collerton, and eventually found the bird. Species number 311 for the year in New York State and my last of the year, as I will be heading to California in the morning.
Not bad for a few minutes before work, no?
Great photo. WHere at the harbor did you find this beauty? I live in Huntington.
I saw one yesterday too. Birds 381 of the year for me.
The bird hangs out on the east side of the harbor from across from Tutto Pazzo to the Knutson Marina.
