Max - It took a long time scanning the many waterfowl but I found it snoozing in the cove to the south of the boat launch last Sunday morning. As I understand, another birder far more accomplished than I was unable to relocate it Sunday afternoon.

Several days ago I found and [photographed a brown-plumaged juvenile male Red Head in an assortment of other ducks at the S.E. corner of American Lake at the DFW boat launch near Camp Murray. Experts have confirmed ID from my photographs.

Has anyone else seen this bird?

Will share photo by e-mail if requested.
