- Comments: "Distant comparison photo showing both genders of each species.
I identified the Greaters by their rounded crowns and greater (stouter,
longer) body and bill size. Also, the male Greater lacks mantle barring
that extends into its flanks, which occurs in the male Lessers. The female
Greater has a much more extensive white band surrounding the base of its
bill than does a Lesser, and this helpful identification feature can be
seen at quite a long distance."

King Eider (Somateria spectabilis) (1)
- Reported Oct 20, 2019 13:26 by Stuart Johnston
- off The Hook, Hood River, Oregon
- Map:

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60829285
- Comments: "female or hatch-year bird, at the periphery of a raft of
diving ducks and grebes, for awhile as close as about 250-300m north of the
n.w. corner of The Hook. It wasn't seen when I first scope-scanned the raft
of waterfowl at 1340, but showed up later on, when the Surf Scoter number
had swelled from 3 to 16. Did not see any scoters or this eider in flight,
they apparently merged by swimming, and later the scoters, et al, drifted
apart into two rafts, one moving downriver to a point off the n. side of
Wells Is. The eider disappeared around 1700/1730. Never saw the scoters or
the eider diving. Eider stood out from the other ducks: overall a very
buffy-coloured, hefty-looking duck, with a lot of mostly fine black
markings. Body bulk looked more or less the same as the White-winged
Scoters, noticeably larger than the scaup. Forehead to culmen to bill tip
was at an angle similar to Green-winged Teal, for example, or N. Pintail,
though bill was not as long as a pintail. At first I did wonder if it might
be a buffy female or imm. N. Pintail, but neck wasn't long and slender like
a pintail. Bill (culmen) was not long and straight-sloping like a female
Com. Eider; rather it was slighter and slaty. Could see that primaries of
eider's on-the-water, folded wing were dark, blackish brown, overlaid with
pale-edged tertials--I think tertials. Wing tips seemed to be jacked up,
held a bit upwards. This duck was too distant to make out fine details of
the bill, using my Bushnell zoom scope 15-20x."

- Comments: "includes 15 female and hatch-year birds, one adult male in
full breeding plumage. Loafing in a raft of mixed diving ducks and grebes
about 250-300m to n. of the n.w. corner of The Hook. At first (at 1340),
there were three Surf Scoters (2 female or imm., one adult male in breeding
plum.) and eight White-winged Scoters in this raft with W. Grebes, 7
Ring-necked Ducks, etc. The Surfs were noticeably, though slightly, smaller
than the White-winged females and imm.; one of the White-winged was a
subadult drake. Eventually more divers joined the raft off the n.w. corner
of The Hook. I watched these waterfowl for a long time (1340-1610) and
observed both scoter species rising up in the water to flap their wings;
used a Bushnell zoom scope 15-20x."

Scoped during the time I watched these waterfowl, from 1340-1610. The
subadult male was all black with a slight dark brown tinge; male and some
of the female/imm. were observed flapping their wings, revealing their
white secondaries. Some female/imm. also showed slivers of their white
secondaries that were exposed while swimming, as did the male. Drake's bill
did not show orange, but there seemed to be a faint trace of the small
white mark under the eye. Eventually the big raft split in two, the 8
White-winged remaining with W. Grebes and scaup, while the 16 Surfs drifted
downriver to waters off Wells Is., along with Buffleheads, ring-necks. Most
of the time both species of scoter loafed with their bills tucked"

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60834759
- Comments: "(Rare): “unreported”: 2 White-striped Adult seen well : two
beauties perched together in willows in one bin view : Zonatrichia sparrows
with yellow lore spots set in broad white supercilium stripes, and lovely
rectangle/square white patch throat bordered with black and also smaller
white patches either side of central one . 1 found by Courtney as Matt
moving car, and lucky we refound for Matt also to see, and now were 2 of
them together!

Jimi Soupir : “Excellent that you covered so much of Grant County yesterday.
We planned on hitting the Middle Fork JD and end up on the N. Fork,
but we wimped and just did the upper main stem here in Prairie City area.
We also had a Golden eagle.
I love that Monument pond.
Where the White-throated sparrow(s) right on Scotty CreeK?
That would be a county lifter for me.”

Matt: “Thanks! I was just looking through Grant County bird records on
eBird this morning and noticed your name. Don’t think we’ve met before. I
should have talked to you before we went romping around to get more info on
this underbirded place.
I wanted to take the eBird Big Day encouragement to go explore a county I
don’t get to much and we settled on Grant. It was really fun, winding down
from the snowy Aldrich all the way to Monument. Beautiful country.
The white-throated sparrows were together, and right where Scotty Creek
goes under NF-24. These Google coordinates should drop on the exact bush
they were in:
(44.1484908, -119.1314567)
They were with a group of kinglets and mountain chickadees at first, but
those guys kept moving around and the sparrows largely stayed put. Seemed
like they were catching some last evening warmth wanting to stay high in
the willow in the sun. Made for nice watching.”"

entering narrow group of mixed oak and evergreen trees. Adult male was
visible half way up tree with distinct yellow belly and back, black wings

was deep in shadows and first to fly, keeping in tree shadows and then out
the other side. The individual that was clearly visible then followed the
first."
