Lesser Scaup (Aythya affinis)

It is like a Tufted Duck but he does not have the hairdo.

  2. Another grand duck Bob. He has more of a hairdo than I do.

    Bob, do you have any tips on distinguishing the Lesser from Greater Scaup?

  4. Hello Bob,
    Its really nice to have you back into the blogosphere!
    I had a look at your previous posts, what lovely pictures you have taken!
    This duck is a beauty and I love how he raises his head feathers making him seem quite relaxed!
    Take care, I hope you are happy in your new house!

  7. Bob, great shots! I like the strong lines and colours. We get them here too, but there's none around yet. Guess they are enjoying the great weather we've been having!

  10. I would love to put the people who name birds in the naughty corner. No imagination, and they are frequently WRONG. There is nothing lesser about this bird's beauty.
    Thanks Bob - I love it.
