Observation details

First spring female at southend of the seawall road. I came out looking for the Black Scoter reported here on eBird recently. I originally IDed this bird as the Black Scoter due to pale cheeks and dark cap, however bill was far too heavy. There were only a handful of ruddy ducks present here at mid-day.
