Black and White-winged Scoters, Richmond Marina

Sheila Dickie

The previously reported male Black Scoter was seen yesterday afternoon, Sunday, November 22nd, between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. swimming with a female Black Scoter in the open water of the Richmond Marina beyond the moored boats. The scoters were seen from the pathway leading up to Vincent Park and from the park itself. Both were loosely associating with Surf Scoters.

Also yesterday, the Female White-winged Scoter previously reported was seen at 4 p.m.swimming and diving in the channel where the Richmond Police motorboats are moored, roughly half way between Salute Restaurant and the Harbor Master's Office/boat ramp.
