Transcript Page 16 Masked Duck: Observed for about 1/2 hour on Shoveler Pond at a distance of about 150 yards with both binocs and scope. About the size of a ruddy duck, cinnamon brown head and neck, darker back more brown than cinnamon, sides lighter brown—almost buffy, white wing patch clearly visible while the bird rested and slept—at times when the bird was facing away from me I could see the wing patches on both wings; face same color as rest of head (not black),however the face seemed to be darker around the bill; curiously there was a large white spot on each side of the bill, but I couldn't tell if It was on the base of the bill or was plumage adjacent to the base of the bill. I believe the bird to likely be an immature male masked duck phasing into mature male plumage; if so, this is clearly another individual distinct from the female or Immature male previously reported. —Elric McHenry White-tailed Hawk: Seen perched and flying 25 yards out +o 100 yards. Immature bird, tail greyish-white above and below with fine banding. Body and wings dark with white wing patches on uppers ides. —Tom Collins Rough-1 egged Hawk: We all felt very uncertain about this identification so are turning it In only as a possible. It was a large buteo seen perching and flying in the same area as the Rough-leg seen by Charles Easley on the Christmas Count. We took it to be an immature. It was dark above, mottled dark and light on the breast. The underside of the wings were dark with a white patch running parallel to the body halfway down the length of the wing. The upperpart of the wings were dark with lighter markings that almost seemed to form an "M". The tail was white at the base with a broad dark band at the tip. When flying, the bird often stopped to hover. It had long wings and a long, narrow tail. —Sherry & Tom Collins Black terminal band on light tail - Dark heavily feathered "pants" or tarsus, dark underneath, lighter brown chest. Observed with binoculars on overcast afternoon for 3 minutes at a range of 65 yards. —Larry Ballard Ferruginous Hawk: A very long-winged hawk with dark body, white tall, tarsus on legs forming dark triangle next to the white tail. Observed flying from post to post at a range of yards on overcast day with binocs. —Larry Ballard First seen pe 9/10 mlle sou were notlceab clearly seen Bi rd appeared wingbeat, tha not be seen w welI from und over water an and II a.m. - rched at edge of water th of Lane St. (Jaci ly whitish.
