Long Tailed ducks near PEI??

Recommended Posts

I am on a vacation to a set of islands in the middle of the Bay of  St. Lawrence north of PEI.  A great birding spot and I hope to find a lot of birds, especially ducks.  I was on the ferry to the islands today and got these shots.  Couldn't figure out what the birds were as I was expecting sea birds but I think these actually were Long Tailed Ducks.  I know that there were numerous reports of them on the marshes and ponds on the islands, but did not expect to see them out at sea.  What I think are the males might be deceiving, as I see no white collar, but as they lifted higher I could clearly see that long tail, which I think is a give away.  The photos were taken from a distance, (severely cropped) but I did see at least 30 of these ducks in several groups and want to report it right.
