Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Breeds in tundra and taiga and winters along the west coast and less on the east coast. Often seen in mixed rafts with other sea ducks, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoters, Barrow's Goldeneye.
Just added a clearer photo of the male Surf Scoter so that his wonderful head and bill markings can be seen more clearly.
