Long-tailed Duck, Morro Bay

Mid-morning today I saw the Long-tailed Duck which has been reported previously.  It was near the dock with sea lions in mid-bay.  As I watched it preen, a Horned Grebe in alternate plumage floated by.  There are still a few Common Loons in breeding plumage, but the number of loons and Eared Grebes has decreased this week.
