Continuing Black Scoters in Santa Barbara Harbor

Observation details

Easily found in the scoter flock looking west from Stearns Wharf. Appeared to be one female and one imm male. The male showed some developing color on the bill which Jon Dunn was able to capture in digiscoped photos. My photos are more distant:
