The other black one

Stejneger’s Scoter

Black Scoter are common visitors to the various ports near Yakumo and they were abundant at the weekend, their eerie calls everywhere.

Stejneger’s Scoter were also very common but were always tantalizingly out of camera range. For some reason they never seem to visit the ports.

As I trudged back to the car I noticed one in among the Scaup.

A second year male I think, maybe injured or sick?
