Lesser Scaup

I was happy to see this lovely lady floating along the Merrimack River on the North End of Plum Island in Newburyport, Massachusetts. I’ve never had the opportunity of working with Scaup.

We get two species of Scaup, Lesser and Greater. Unless you are right on top of them and you have them side-by-side, it’s definitely a case of shoot first and ask questions later.

This is her diving partner. They stayed about 20-30 feet apart and dove together. He’s in his winter plumage.

"Shoot first and ask questions afterwards."
Your mantra I have followed religiously Steve.
