Lesser Scaup

These bird we see during the winter months. A large flock of them come and stay at the lake at our apartment complex. They are very small ducks with black bodies and light blue bills. The females have more of a brown colored body. They are diving ducks. so we often see them diving beneath the water’s surface in search of food.
