Not correct for 'Lesser Scaup' can you identify this duck?

Recommended Posts

Portland, Oregon in a wetland, this pair, the male almost has markings of a Lesser Scaup, but the bill is a darker color and the markings are somewhat different... I need help with this one.

Agree. The white stripe going up the neck is a helpful ID feature. Your bird was unfortunately sitting low so you didn't see the classic tail. Attaching a favorite photo of mine (also with a Northern Shoveler).
