Tufted Duck 26 February 2011 at Lake Merritt, Oakland, ALA Photo © 2011 Joseph Morlan

This Eurasian species is a rare straggler to California, but Lake Merritt is one of the better places to find them. This adult male has been present off and on for most of the winter and is probably the same bird seen here in past winters.
