The imm. male WWSC was seen today in the afternoon. We were there for 15 minutes scanning the lake with no luck. I had concluded that it was not there and had walked away from the scope and down the lakeshore. Walking back toward Carol I saw it just offshore. It just appeared out of nowhere. It can stay down for 30-35 seconds so I think that we checked in close and not seeing it we starting checking the far-off coot flocks and just looked over it, literally.
