Scoters

Great birds...Surf Scoters!

As for the others, there is a definite drake Velvet Scoter and a definite female/young Common Scoter. The others are probably drake Common Scoters, as well, but detail is vague and they could be young Velvets, perhaps.

Velvets

This photo only shows part of the flock. The other Velvet Scoters probably aren't in these photos. The Black Scoter I saw nearby in April was reported but I did'nt see it on that day.
