Jack Barclay and Bill Kelsey-
11 January 2012, off Hotchkiss Grove, Branford - "Several hundred" (~275) scaup, believed to be Greaters (white flanks, smooth head, white wing stripe), sex ratio roughly 2:1 males, strung out 300-600m offshore and presumed to be same group as reported by others for East Shore Park, New Haven. We saw no other scaup or diving ducks in midday survey from E.S. Park and Lighthouse Point to Hotchkiss Grove.
