Let's see what the ducks are up to.
The Surf Scoter is a large sea duck that overwinters in our area. It is sometimes locally called the Skunk Headed Coot, because of the markings on the head.
They feed on mussels that they scoop up when they dive
Mallards also overwinter in our area and are found in flocks on the bays and sloughs
They often flock with the American Wigeons
