reddirtretiree Norman, OK A new bird on one of the ponds this a.m. and it's something I've not seen before. I've looked through my Sibley's and I'm not seeing anything that fits it. Has a yellow eye, scoter-like. Taken from some distance.

Resin Northumberland United Kingdom (Zone 9a) Greater Scaup, female.
reddirtretiree Norman, OK Thanks for your help, Resin. I have a local expert who thinks it's a molting male Goldeneye. I'm conflicted.
Resin Northumberland United Kingdom (Zone 9a) Wrong head shape, and much too long a bill, for a Goldeneye (they have short stubby bills).
Burd_Fotos Sandusky, OH Agree with female Greater Scaup.
reddirtretiree Norman, OK I'm with you guys on scaup. Just never seen one with this much white on the lores.
