Help us identify these diving ducks on Lake Audubon
Out on the west end of Lake Audubon today.
Look at the 2 in the middle of the photo - the one on the right might be a bufflehead, but who is this fellow on the left? My notes from audio capture while viewing with binoculars:
white sides, black chest, head, back
beak: white mottled, not pointy
short pointy tail
big head, stout duck
eye is colored -- red or orange
1:30 pm update - all birds in photo are believed to be a Scaup. The Lesser Scaup has been seen here rarely. The Greater Scaup has not. The eye is yellow.
