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?
