White-winged Scoters at Beaverfork Lake.

White-winged Scoter Beaverfork Lake February 2014 0041

A friend reported that as many as 12 White-winged Scoters were there Friday afternoon. Saturday morning there were fewer but I saw three. The light was terrible but I managed to get this shot of a male and female. You can see the namesake white wing and commas near the eyes of the male as well as the scoter-like schnozzola.
