Greater/Lesser Scaup

Adding this record after the fact: I had seen three ducks in flight, repeatedly circling low over a flock of Goldeneyes far out in the lake. The most distinct field mark was the white trailing edge of the wing. After looking into a couple of sources I decided that these were Scaup. Probably Greater Scaup because of the extent of the white edge, but I'm not confident enough to call it.

Two females across NW bay, plus two more females with two males in mixed flock far out along the north shore.
