On my last trip to Port Orchard I captured a shot of a female Scaup that looked like this
and noted that I spent a considerable amount of time trying to identify it. On this visit I saw this duck and immediately recognized it as a Male Greater Scaup.
I’m used to getting great shots of Baird’s Goldeneyes at Port Orchard, but I seldom see Common Goldeneyes like this male
and when I do they are usually so far out that I can’t capture this kind of detail.
I also had good luck capturing this shot of a female Hooded Merganser with the sunlight behind her for a change.
