Yellow Bird ID + Greater Scaup Confirmation

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the ID on the Chaffinch.  Looking at photos of the Ferruginous Duck, the eyes look

a little more whitish.  I don't recall seeing a white rump.  Any chance that it is a Tufted?

I agree with the Common Chaffinch and I would say Tufted Duck female for the second due to the golden eyes, yet not much white on the head as seen in Greater Scaup females. Ferruginous Duck females would have dark eyes. Plus, Tufted are more common than Ferruginous there.

Yeah... definitely not either Scaup. For some reason,  I thought female Ferruginous had yellow eyes(which is incorrect)... so this has to be a female Tufted.
