From a private residence, Ron Payne and I counted by individuals 4114
scaup at Goose Cove and nearby, southeast of the Champlain Bridge in
Bridport on November 11th. The delay in reporting is due to processing
a count from stitched photos of a raft containing 3380 scaup.
Characteristic of scaup in this part of the lake, Lesser Scaup
predominated. Moreover, in each of the two rafts, also
characteristically, the two species were not uniformly distributed ...
with the Greater Scaup more to the edges of the rafts (a somewhat common
phenomenon). Numbers are in these two checklists.
Good birding and a wonderful Thanksgiving to all ....
