Interested in College in Alaska?

Lesser Scaup
Aythya affinis

I am not possitive about this identification, it could also be a Greater Scaup. I made the id I did based on the shape of the top of the head.

Location: Swan Lake, Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Greater White-fronted Geese (Anser albifrons)
Next: Mt. Edgecumbe
