Tufted Duck (?) , Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada, Rocky Harbour, May 16 2012


I originally called this a Tufted Duck but it has been suggested that it is a hybrid, possibly with scaup. It lacks a good tuft, having just a few stray hackles, and the head profile is somewhat scaup-like
