A major highlight on the east coast was having the chance to photograph Lesser Scaup in Maryland. There were at least a couple hundred birds present and all were extremely tame. There was also a nice mix of Canvasback and American Wigeon within the flock. As always, it was much easier to capture images of the scaup in the water than in flight.
Here are a few of the scaup photos that I took during our one day at the location.
