Lesser Scaup range map

Lesser Scaup is known as the Blue Bill and is very similar to the Greater Scaup, which is also referred to as a Blue Bill. The head is much smaller on the Lesser Scaup when compared to the larger head, which has a different profile. They are easier to distinguish among each the other when the two ducks are side by side. This scaup is seen in Cuba.
