Which Scoter?

Recommended Posts

Seen today in northern New Jersey in large mixed Scoter raft. It was the only one that looked like this. Thinking first winter male Black Scoter??

Sure looks like a Black Scoter, but with only the slightest hint of yellow or swelling on the bill.  Perhaps someone with knowledge of their molt timing will weigh in.
