Scaup- Hoping Greater

Recommended Posts

Today, Augusta, GA--Phinizy Swamp And Nature Park. Four Greater Scaup were recently reported. I think I found two--head rounded toward front and wider nail on both birds. Second photo features a Lesser for comparison. Thanks.

Yes, with the rounded head shape and broad bill and nail, all the scaups are a male and female Greater and there is indeed a male Lesser on the right in the second photo.

Edit: Sniped by Alex!

Lifer? Nemesis?

No, year bird. I saw my first Greater early last year. We get a few through here, but they always get flagged. And for some strange reason I'm out of likes. :classic_tongue:

Now I'll have to look at my Phinizy photos from last week again.

Yeah, either that or head back over for another look.
