Observation details

immature male / female, photographed. Only a few days after a similar boat trip on Blue Mountain Lake and Eagle Lake resulted in 7 Surf and 1 White-winged Scoter. This was only diving duck on Blue Mountain Lake during this trip. Observed by all on the boat but only a few who knew birds well enough to realize a scoter is uncommon here.
