Because of the shape of the meeting of bill and feathering on the front of the head in Surf Scoters, the white patch in front of the eye is virtually always taller than wide -- there just is not enough room between eye and bill to have a wide patch of white there.

Thanks Tony!  You say virtually always taller than wide; is this because the patch is sometimes short, or can it occasionally be somewhat wide?
