Look carefully

Had to pass along L’Anse-Veaudreuil this morning so took the camera just in case there was something interesting on the water.  About 300-400 Canada Geese, of course, a couple of dozen Mallards and two little black and white ducks.  Scaup I thought, took a snap and drove off … on examining the photographs at home though they revealed themselves to be Ring-necked Ducks and not Scaup at all. Not especially rare, but a first for this year’s list so a good tick.
