Glad I was able to make it out before work this morning to check out the Tufted Duck in Cold Spring Harbor across the street from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (where DNA was discovered). Thanks to all the folks who posted the sighting on the NY ABA Birding Listserv. The photo isn't great because the light wasn't good as this was taken just about as the sun was rising. The Tufted Duck was among approximately 20 Ring-necked Ducks and one male Redhead. You can see it is the second duck from the right side of the photo.
