Scaups or otherwise?

Recommended Posts

Immature male Lesser Scaup; Any Blue-winged Teal with blatantly obvious white between eye and bill would look nothing like this. Note that, with few exceptions, diving ducks have relatively unpatterned feathers, while dabbling ducks have patterned feathers (that is, with multiple internal markings; and that doesn't count the dark bars on male scaup feathers, as on this bird).
