SURF SCOTERS GALORE AT CLEAR LAKE

27 SEPTEMBER 2013



An hour late this afternoon at Clear Lake (west of Rimrock Lake) off US-12
in western Yakima County was good for a super count of SURF SCOTERS. All
were in female or juvenile plumage. They were in the murky green waters off
the Clear Lake Day Use Site (closed but an easy walk) in. I think this is
very probably an eastern WA all-time high count. Somebody go get some
photos, please!
