Observation details

Continuing first winter male photographed by Brittany and Tom. Dark head with dark feathers covering the top half of the bill -- unlike any of the other scoters. First spotted this bird by standing on sand mound below the youth center near shore and scoping the massive flock. Bird was in middle of flock traveling south, so I headed south for better views (stood in front of large Dept. of Water & Power building). Did not see white wing patches until I observed the bird for some time. Poor digiscoped photos while bird preened.
