Black Scoter





Length--19½ in.

Weight--2½ lbs.



In flight, drakes appear all black except for the flash of the slight

gray underwing and the bright yellow swelling at the base of the upper

bill.



Scoters feed on mollusks, crabs, and some fish and very little

vegetation. They are locally known as coots.
