New Bird Photographed – Surf Scoter

Surf Scoter

This photo was not taken in Dutchess County.

One of the trails at the Wells Reserve in Maine led to a beach which we decided to check out.  It’s not a habitat we have here in Dutchess County, so I was hoping to find something new.

Not far into the hike, I could see two duck-like birds swimming along the crashing waves.  When I zoomed in with my camera, I was happy to see it was surf scoters!  It was easily the most interesting looking bird of the trip.
