  1.  On a recent business trip to Miami, picked up a 2 misses from last time as well as 2 rarities. However no pics as I did not bring the camera.

    622-625: Thick-billed Vireo, Western Spindalis, White-winged Parakeet, and Spot-breasted Oriole.

  2. Agree with female Redhead here. As was stated above that white mark, the facial marking is fine for female Redhead.... Remembering that there can be  variation between individual birds.

    @ egosnell2002... In my experience, Redheads usually mix in with Scaup, but I have seen plenty of times where all 3 species (Redheads, Ring-neckeds and Scaup) are on the same small body of water.

    @ Millipede...as with many species, the more you see this species(even females), it will become easier to differentiate them. I always recommend using a field guide with true pics as well as one with drawings, as both have pros and cons, but used together can often give a clearer understanding of field marks, plumages, etc.
