Subject: [CT Birds] Eiders and Scoters Upriver
I too have noticed several Common Eider and both White-winged Scoter and Surf Scoter swimming north in the Niantic and the Poquonnock Rivers in the past couple of weeks. My guess, as others have mentioned, is the ducks pursuing a new food source, as each one was actively feeding in the rivers.
