Black Scoter in Oceanside

Black Scoter in Oceanside
By – 3:09 pm
I noted a female Black Scoter off of Oceanside Beach yesterday.  It was associated with thelarge Surf Scoter flock prevalent this fall/winter which frequents the area between the Oceansidepier and the jetty at the south side of the boat channel leading out of the harbor.  The main partof the flock with the Balck Scoter was north of the now-closed mouth of the San Luis Rey River.  The scoters stay offshore beyond the breakers so a scope is needed to sort through the many individual ducks.Ken WeaverFallbrookgnatcatcher@…
