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?
