Female Scaup

Recommended Posts

If anyone wants to beat their head against this wall, more power to you.  I've given up on trying to ID this bird.  It's in Tucson, AZ but isn't supposed to be.  I have more photos but they look very much like this one.  All on the water.

If I had to call this one I would be leaning Greater in alarm mode (not enough head above the eye if the feathers were flattened, rounded head, eye colour more typical of Greater, fairly large white patch at base of bill and even with the side view the bill looks quite wide).

Tough call - unless an expert here can be more definitive it may be better left as /.
