Yesterday (2/21) I went to the Marblehead Lighthouse SP in Ottawa County and saw a White-winged Scoter east of the park around 2:20pm. It looked like a first year male with only a white smudge near the eye. There weren't a whole lot of ducks except to the south of the lighthouse but then a large group of Redhead, Goldeneye & Scaup flew in and landed to the northeast. He eventually drifted north and ended up mixed in with those ducks.
Today (2/22) I went back there around 1:30 and there really weren't hardly any ducks around and it was very rough with northeast winds. There was now an adult male White-winged Scoter east-southeast of the park. He had the white crescent below the white eye.
Maybe they have been hanging around awhile-I don't know-as I haven't been going here for awhile.
