Following an early afternoon eye appointment, I drove to Oakland to see f I could find the Tufted Duck near Laney College.  I parked on 7th Street and walked down to scan all the Scaups.  I did not see the one with a black back, but I did see a suspicious bird swimming upstream toward the rusty pedestrian bridge.  I walked to the bridge, and sure enough, The male Tufted Duck was jsut inside that section of the channel.  It even turned a bit allowing me to see its shorter tuft.
