Pt. La Jolla sea watch 3 White-winged Scoters

This morning I arrived at La Jolla Cove about 6:40 to find Gary Nunn and Bruce Rideout already staked out and watching. The first flock of scoters to come by had an immature male White-winged Scoter mixed in, my target species for today. We had about 200 Surf Scoters for the morning, a handful each of Common and Pacific Loons, a Snow or Ross’s Goose land well offshore, a few phalaropes (likely Red-necked), and a Parasitic Jaeger as well. After Bruce left two more White-winger Scoters came. Much closer, and Gary got photos of the adult males. Great viewing conditions this morning.
