Description:

This bird was 300+ meters offshore and even with 1000mm of camera lens the images are very poor. I guess it might be a White-winged Scoter, but I'm not sure at all. The white seems to be oddly shaped for a scoter, but the bird was way out and the wind blowing 30 mph. It seems to have an orangish colored bill. It drifted by in the fast wind and current and we lost sight of it soon. Any ID thoughts appreciated.
