[va-bird] White-winged scoter on York - still present

I think this makes three days now... the WHITE-WINGED SCOTER is still 
present under the Coleman Bridge on the Gloucester County side. It is 
chumming with the three buffleheads there. If you come down the road 
towards the boat ramp, the birds are to the right of the bridge in a small 
backwater-type area out of the wind. The strong winds have the river 
whipped into a frenzy so the birds are staying close to shore - allowing 
easy looks. I did not see any white on the scoter's face, but it shows the 
wing patches often. I presume this is a female or a young bird?
