Observation details

Incredible views of 2 males with 8 WWSC. Viewed here (64.4418885, -164.9671167) about 15 feet offshore, eventually the group flew off to the west. Really nice side by side comparison with WWSC. Black flanks compared to brown of WWSC, bill color yellow on lower edge with bright red above, head shape different where it meets bill with more pronounced knob.
