Jeff mentioned to me that Canvasbacks have not been very easy to find this winter in Orange County. There are currently 17 in the small pond off Shady Canyon Road at Bommer Canyon in Irvine. I have had this species on this pond several times over the years, it seems to be a good place to find them.

I also had a lone male Canvasbacks on Upper Oso Reservoir yesterday, which is a very good part of the county for this species.
