Scaups --(Aythya spp.) (38254 bytes)

Interested in College in Alaska?

Aythya spp.

At first I was thinking these were all Lesser Scaups (A. affinis) but then I started to wonder if one of the males was a Greater Scaup (A. marila). With that, I became uncertain about the female as well.

Location: Swan Lake, Sitka, Alaska
