Scaup On Cherokee

Finally getting back into the blog zone for the new year. Not a lot happening but I did notice a new duck out on Lake Cherokee. Much like a Ring-necked but a bit darker.

Turns out to be a female Lesser Scaup. Not entirely uncommon but scarce enough for me.

Lesser Scaup

She was way out on the lake but not too far to be unrecognizable.

Later, just before dark, there were a few dozen Scaup out on Lake Davis, 2 blocks over.

In these quiet times, I will take it.
