Long-tailed Duck juvenile?


Recommended Posts

I saw this bird swimming with a Greater Scaup and several Black Scoters this morning at Jones Beach State Park, NY. Only the cheek patch really makes me think it is a juvenile Long-tailed Duck, and perhaps the bill. Birds of the World says about the bill,  "In hatchlings, dark gray to bluish gray."
