Fwd: White winged scoter?
- On reflection, probably not. When I got home, I found a photo in the Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of N. America (p. 51) of a juvenile red-breasted merganser in flight, with the profile and coloring of our causeway bird. My apologies for the premature excitement.Jim Boughton

Driving across the Sanibel causeway a few minutes ago, what appeared to be a WWSC flew right in front of us. White secondaries very prominent.
