Male Tufted Duck at Lake Merritt

This morning at Lake Merritt there was a male Tufted Duck in the scaup flock at
the El Embarcadero or Grand Lake Theater lobe of the lake. The tuft was very
short and only visible when the bird was awake; it looked like a single
dreadlock. The female Redhead was still present.

PS Not sure if a male has been reported yet this season. Wasn't the Tufted Duck
reported earlier this season a female?
