White-winged Scoter: Batiquitos Lagoon W. Basin; 7DEC2020

I observed a female or 1st winter WHITE-WINGED SCOTER late this afternoon, 7DEC2020, at the Western Basin of Batiquitos Lagoon. Observing with scope from northern side, near Navigator Circle, it was in the middle of basin. It blended in fairly well with ducks and coots. I could see white secondary patch in some views.

Nice 5MR bird.
