Surf Scoter - adult male

Full alternate plumage, with brightly decorated bill. Note the pale eye and the white patches on forhead and back of neck. The feathers of the forehead area extend well onto the bill. The Surf Scoter flies faster than any other duck (70 mph), and the males wings produce a loud and pretty warbling whistle.
