Masked Duck
Masked Duck
Photo by Rosemary Seidler. This Masked Duck was found by Paul Dickson on his property on Lenoard Road in Shreveport now called Tar Slough.  Thanks to Paul who arranged many viewings so that anyone wishing to see the bird could do so.  Approximately 80 birders viewed it. Year listers from as far as Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Indiana came by air and by car very soon after it was found to tick it off. Most birders viewing it were from Louisiana and also from Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee.  The duck remained on the property at least a month.  It was very far away when this photo was taken.
