Greater Scaup

Greater Scaup, originally uploaded by hobbitsmama.

Between snowstorms, I took a long cold walk around Fort Trumbull (while the kids were making a snow blob and sledding.) I had a wonderful and peaceful walk. It was so cold that hardly anyone was out. I spotted this Greater Scaup sheltering on the rocks right beneath the pier. So beautiful! I hope he was OK. He is a new bird for me .. and about my 45th so far this year. I have seen scaups before but never close enough to tell if it was a greater or lesser. I took quite a few shots of this guy.
