King Eider

First year male. Large chunky duck with lighter brown plumage than nearby female type WWSC, lighter contrasting breast, and heavy-based pastel orange coloured bill, in a raft about 1km east of Sparrow Field. We had already left this spot but Mark Nenadov was just arriving so I offered to help him find some scoters. Good thing I did! This, I believe, is only my second ever KIEI in the Point Pelee area!

19
Surf Scoter

Exact count of individuals within rafts near Sparrow Field. Chunky large dark ducks, most of which had easily recognizable white patches on back and top of heads and funny orange/white bills.

140
White-winged Scoter

Fairly accurate estimate based on individuals flying when entire duck raft flew. Huge dark chunky ducks with large white rectangular specula in flight.
