The Greater Scaup is a diving duck that enjoys lakes, bays and ponds. It is often seen on salt water in large rafts often composed of thousands of birds. It is a particulary hardy bird capable of withstanding severe cold and rough weather in winter. This duck appears right at home on Quidi Vidi Lake.
