Early visiting scoters in Ogunquit, Maine

Recommended Posts

I saw about 70 of these a few hundred yards off shore in Ogunquit, Maine this evening. The pix are terrible (dark, foggy, distant, etc). Sorry about that. Based on head and bill shape, I think these are mostly Black Scoters. Any help in confirming or correcting that ID (as always) is most welcome. Thanks!

As usual, this has been very helpful and is much appreciated. I change the entry in eBird to “scoter species”.

Also, today, I saw three white winged scoters very clearly as they were flying by. I tracked them in the telescope for about a minute. The white patches in the wings were unmistakable.

Thanks again.
