Greater or Lesser Scaup

Recommended Posts

Taken at Cypress Links golf course, St. Petersburg, FL 8th Feb 2018.  I am thinking Greater but have been known to be wrong many times.  They were a small flock on freshwater which I believe is more indicative of Lesser.

All birds were in the same flock but all pictures not necessarily the same bird(s)

I agree with Lesser. Scaups will always the opposite of what you hope they are, so I'm guessing you were hoping for greater.;)

Going by head shape (peak at the back of the head), I'd call these Lesser Scaup.

Agreed. Not quite round enough for Greater.
