Scaup ID - SW MI 3/18

Recommended Posts

The second photo almost looks like the peak is behind the eye. I also might be leaning towards Greater. I would email your reviewer and ask what brought them to the conclusion of Lesser.

Any other thoughts on the Scaup(s)?

I'm sticking with Lesser for the second bird.

The first bird I would probably report as /. I'm assuming no more photos. The bill looks on the small size for a Greater but tough angle, also the head is rounded but appears to have more "substance" vertically than horizontally (a personal ID starter check) so still leaning Lesser.
