Surf Scoter

Length--19½ in.

Weight--2 lbs.

Like all scoters, these birds move along our coasts in loose flocks,

stringing into irregular, wavy lines. Drakes can be distinguished from

other scoters by two white patches on their head and the bright color of

the bill.

Flight is strong, direct, usually close to the waves.
