Lesser Scaup?

Recommended Posts

There might be a mix in here. In general, they're super hard to ID in flight. Lessers have a peak in front and in back in flight, whereas Greaters have a smooth transition from the front beak to the neck. In addition, Greaters have more white than Lessers. Based on these criteria, I think the bottom two in the first photo might be Greaters while the rest are Lessers. I could be wrong though.
