Sam;

I think you might be right! If confirmed, that is a new species for me! It was so difficult in the dim light to get even that one photo for Id purposes. I hope I can see them again

Tom, `I think they are Ring-necked Duck,. The female in both greater and lesser scaups has the broad white band ar the base of the bill. the only I could find that the Male has that is the Ring-necked Duck. the female in your posting looks as if it hasn't the white stripe. also the Greater Scaup s back is rather greyish, whereas the duck in your post has a very dark with a different pattertn.. that's my take. could be wrong.. hope others weight in on this one , and correct me if it is so..
