Scoring Scoters

8 posts in this topic

I think I have a comparison photo here of all three scoters. Pretty darn sure I have White-winged top left and Black on the bottom, but is the last a Surf? I would say so because of the oval white patch at the base of the bill

from top to bottom:

WW

Surf

Black

The ordering in this picture is confusing. Which one is the top? Of the two birds further away, the one to the right looks closer, but is higher in the picture.

Thanks for the replies - yeah that's why I referred to them as "top left" and "top right" to avoid confusion. I got a bunch of pictures of this flock but this was the closest I had all three species together in one photo!
