Richmond Marina Black Scoter

Steven Tucker

Birders -

Not sure if this is old news or not, but the male Black Scoter has made his triumphant return. The bird was out in the inner harbor basin in the morning and then right next to the bay trail (near Barbara and Jay Vincent Park) in the afternoon. The bird was calling repeatedly (first time I've ever heard one), seemingly trying to make some female scaup take notice of him. They were nonplussed.

Good birding,
