White-winged Scoter

Melanitta fusca

White-winged Scoters winter in Puget Sound, preferring to forage for mollusks and crustaceans in deeper water than the two other species of scoters. Nearly 90% of White-winged Scoters breed in the Canadian boreal forest, where they build nests in heavy brush on land next to water.

Marymoor Park

Puget Trough

The 640-acre Marymoor Park is worth a visit any time of year. Migrating songbirds in the willows and cottonwoods are a possibility now, as are wintering waterfowl on Lake Sammamish. Look for sparrow flocks near the Lot D parking lot.
