What a mystery!

I poked around some and the winter plumage described for the long tailed duck seems to match (more so than some others I looked at).

And...I sent your photo to a local birder friend I know and she confirmed my ID. She saw some today on the Hudson River. :-)

It was in with a small group of bufflehead. I could tell what it was through the binoculars, but so much nicer to have a decent picture just to be sure.

Formerly known as oldsquaw

which is the name I knew them by, but I am more or less a "former" observer of waterfowl.

Piestewa Peak in AZ is another place with a similar re-branding, long after I used to stomp around there.
