Observation details

Diving duck observed for 90 minutes. overall brown in color with head being darker brown & sides paler brown. It had white at the base of the bill, NOT crescent shape (excluding BWTE). Profile view of the duck show a more "egg" or rounded shape to the head. NO peaked crown nor was the back of the head flat. Head of view of the duck shows the puffier checks and broader bill. Finally, on 3 occasions it FULLY extended its wings and the white on the remiges did indeed pass the secondary feathers up to the primaries. We're confident that this diving duck was indeed GRSC
