This morning, December 2nd, Darlene Friedman and I birded Port Huron.
At the end of Riverview next to the Coast Guard station, where Lake
Huron drains into the St. Clair River, we saw a female King Eider. We
watched an adult male Harlequin Duck fly out of the river and into Lake
Huron. We went the short distance north to Lighthouse Park and found
the Harlequin close to shore in with goldeneyes. A flock of 10
Long-tailed Ducks and one Red-necked Grebe were also off of Lighthouse
Park. We saw no scoters from that park so we went north in to the
adjacent residential area and found several scaup flocks with scoters
beyond, say 7 Surf Scoters and 5 White-winged Scoters. We dipped on
Farmington Hills, Mi.
