    It's a scaup, certainly. However, identifying a scaup from a single, relatively poor photo is quite "dangerous." Is the bird or has the bird been diving? What does the head shape look like two seconds earlier or two seconds later? I would leave it unidentified, though I actually think that it's a Lesser. Greater Scaup is nearly the same size as Redhead, and this bird looks noticeably smaller.

    I think this is the proper way to look at this one just because of the fact that there is only one photo and it is not great quality, I would just leave it as greater/lesser scaup

    That's definitely what I've been thinking as well. I just ran out, and I counted up how many I had within the past 24 hours... I used 10. Maybe the limit is 10?

    not sure, it might possibly be 10, i also wonder if maybe using a reaction other than a like is worth more, like laughing at something is worth two likes or something

  3. ok I think I  may have figured out the likes guys, so I think that each like is on its own 24 hour cycle, so if you liked someones post at 9am(using just one like) then used no more likes for for a while and used the rest(14) of them at 7 30pm you would have no likes in till 9am the next morning at witch point you would get back the single like you used yesterday morning.

  4. Well it is hard to see in picture because of lighting but the bird was very scraggly and the throught was a very contrasting and bright as was the head. I think it may be that I am used to seeing them have such striking colors, up here in Maine they are very dull with less distinct coloration, it may just be the light as well.
