I meant to add that there was an odd male Surf Scoter just off the beach, with a white patch on one wing. It was definitely a Surf and not a White-winged; the mark was larger and positioned differently, and everything else about it was Surf-like. I am not sure if it was a partial albino or if something else was the cause.

The bird found by Emma Arul on the CBC (maybe the same one seen there early in the Fall?) is still there on the beach.
