CF2C6065-001The colder weather on Cape Cod invites searching for the arrival of wintering ducks.  Among the sea ducks in local harbors and sheltered bays, the medium-sized Black Scoter is a common sight with a round head and dark gray bill.  This female is brownish overall with a dark cap and light coloredcheek.  Scoters dive for mollusks and aquatic insects.  This female was observed in a small flock in West Falmouth Harbor.
