Video Quiz: Greater & Lesser Scaup

A first for us here at Nemesisbird: a video quiz!

The first part of the video features a side-by-side comparison of drake Greater and Lesser Scaup. The birds are far away, and the lighting and resolution is not the best. But this is so often the case when viewing waterfowl in the wild! “National Geographic” cover-photos are the rare exception. The second part of the quiz presents an unidentified Scaup. Take your time to study it, and especially watch how the head shape changes depending on what the bird is doing. Don’t rush to judgement…

And, if you’re willing… submit your answer to the poll below!

Good luck!
