Summer Skunkhead

I shot these picture while on a fishing trip the other day.  I think that a drake surf scoter is one of the prettiest birds of all the waterfowl species.  I’m not sure why this bird was still hanging around during the summer.  I thing he was probably wounded but looked very well fed to me…….just couldn’t make the flight back up north with his cohorts.

Enjoy the pics and get ready for the season.  I am starting to get exciting for some cold weather and some of the finest sea duck hunting anywhere.
