White-Winged Scoters At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.


We could see a lot of birds out in the water at Coast Guard Beach, but it wasn’t until we got home and saw them on the computer that we realized they were White-winged Scoters. What a treat!

White-winged Scoters have a black body with a white eye patch and a white patch on the underside of its wings that you can see better when it flies. They can be seen on Cape Cod ¬†and along the eastern coast during the winter. This is the first “winter” seabird that we’ve seen this season.

Have you ever seen a White-winged Scoter?

  1. It’s good to see that some birds still follow the seasons.
    I just looked out my door and saw two robins. I hope they know how to adapt to Connecticut fall and winter!
