From Chuck Slusarczyk Jr. :
Surf Scoter at Sandy Ridge Reservation, Lorain County.
“Very cool to see a Surf Scoter on such a relatively small and shallow wooded lake instead of bouncing on the waves 1/4 mile offshore on Lake Erie in a snowstorm! She was mostly hanging out with some ring-necked ducks, but there were coot and blue-winged teal in the frame with it at other times. This topped off a great day of spotting that started at Lorain Impound where I bumped into Gabe Leidy. We saw a flock of almost 70 pectoral sandpipers fly by, a dunlin in the shallows, a lesser black backed gull and heard a sora in the reeds.”
