Scaup in Washington, DC (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi everyone,

These three scaups were spotted at the Tidal Basin, SW Washington, DC, in November.

I'm attaching three photos of different angles/postures, all of which indicate Lesser to me, but since it's such a tricky bird to ID, I figured I'd better ask the experts.

Thanks for any help!
