The Surf Scoter
The Surf Scoter is a large sea duck which breeds in Northern Canada and Alaska, and winters along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts. The drake is easily identified by a full black body, except for white patches on the nape and forehead, and its unique bulbous red, yellow and white bill. The hen is fairly uniform in colour from dark to black-brown with two whitish patches at the base of the bill and behind the eye. The Surf Scoter is known for its keen eye sight and the ability to fly fast and close to the water’s surface.
