White-winged Scoter

The White-winged Scoter is a sea duck that frequents the waters around the island of Newfoundland. I saw my first flock of these at Cape Race, Newfoundland. There were quite a distance from shore and about 100 feet below us. Once again, I asked my camera to perform a miracle and it at least yielded me this record shot where the markings are fairly clear. The bird is named for the white wing which shows on at least three of these birds. I need to be in a boat to get the best pictures of this bird.
