      Hi Bob! The last recorded sighting of the Long-tailed Duck at Bolsa Chica that we found was December 28, 2016. There was however, a Long-tailed Duck seen near Sunset Aquatic Park/Anaheim Bay April 22-24, 2017.

      The Long-tailed Duck actually made an appearance on a Miracles education tour on Thursday, December 8, 2016. Here is an excerpt from the Miracles tour report:
      “Long-tailed Duck, a bird which is rarely seen in SoCal, was swimming in the bay next to the Sand Dunes Trail”
