This female Long-tailed Duck was photographed at Southside Waste Water Treatment Plant in Dallas County on November 22. 2000.

This species was once considered quite rare in North Central Texas. Each year since the winter of 1997-98 multiple sightings of Long-tailed Ducks have been discovered throughout the region. It is still too early to say if this is a long-term trend or not. Most of these individuals have involved females or immature birds (MW)
