Lesser Scaups? Northern Virginia, USA (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

I took this photo today at a freshwater lake in northern Virginia. These two ducks were smaller than the mallards that were also on the lake. Are they lesser scaups?

Never mind. I just found this photo, also taken today. Based on the bill, I think these are ring-necked ducks, not scaups.
