Scaup Confirmation

Recommended Posts

Observed today at Westchester Lagoon in Anchorage AK, a location where both greater and lesser scaup have been observed in recent days.  I want to be sure I’m distinguishing these females correctly.  I’m calling the ducks in the shots with a single bird lesser scaups due to the blockier shape to the head with the flatter top and back of head.  I think the three ducks in the shot together are greater scaups because of their more rounded heads.  Does that sound correct?  Thanks in advance for your feedback.
