not sure which variety, but I spotted a flock of these birds near the shore. they then flew out to the Petley Rock area. they did not appear to be feeding when i observed them. There were 10+ birds in this flock of both genders.

good sighting, Tom. I think they are Red-breasted Mergansers. I make that assumption because the white wing patch is isolated and only on the trailing edge on the males , but the white patch is the width of the wing of the Common Mergansers and extends to the white body of the male. that is my amature take!!!
