    Equipment Note

NOTES: A huge concentration of Long-tailed Ducks resting on the water, diving for food (apparently Zebra Mussels) and calling like crazy. The flock was counted by groups of 25. Numbers of Long-tailed Ducks elsewhere along the shore were down condiserably from past weeks. We wonderered if there were exceptional feeding conditions here in areas that had been covered with ice most of the winter.
