The big flocks are breaking up all along the shoreline. My favorite flock is down from 2,000 to a couple of hundred.

The first five shots are courtesy of Chato, the immitation Wolf, whose antics draw them to the shore like a magnet. They were fifty feet from me and only twenty feet from him.

The Greater Scaup is a Diving Duck, and they eat whatever they can find. But unlike the straight fishing Ducks they "pop-up" like corks. In this case they were gathering seaweed from the bottom. These two shots are from a 150 feet or so.
