aveschapinas Posted February 3, 2020 Share Posted February 3, 2020 Birding friends here have asked me how to pronounce "Scaup". Unfortunately I learned about birding here, mostly from native Spanish speakers, so I've picked up a lot of their mispronunciations and don't always know which is considered correct! I've always assumed "Scaup" should be pronounced like "scalp" (I don't pronounce the l in scalp). But some locals say "scope" or "scoop". Now, "scalp" is very difficult for Spanish speakers to pronounce, so that alone could explain it. But - how do you pronounce it? Thanks!
