Greater Scaup

Observation details

Watched the pair feeding for about 10 minutes. Hanging out alone and not mixed with Lesser Scaup. Typical Greater Scaup look and previously reported in the area by David Taylor. Rounded, almost flat, sloped head on both birds. Male had clean white sides and female had extensive white around base of bill. I could only manage a few poor digiscoped photos since the birds were actively feeding and diving.
