So I know I saw a White-winged Scoter at Prospect Lake and/or Big Johnson Reservoir in Colorado Springs in winter but I wouldn't know how to begin to tell what it is now. I doubt I have the photos that might be needed - I wonder if anyone has gone through past photos or other evidence etc. and found compelling evidence of Velvet or Stejneger's in their Colorado list yet??? Would that be something the CBRC would review if that were the case? Ebird is calling the ones I've reported before as Melanitta deglandi.
