The calls of Black Scoter signify Spring for me as well Stu.... so soft and plaintive but still that call carries.

Thanks, Joanne and Jimmy. The whistling of Black Scoters, whether coming from birds resting along our coasts or from high overhead at night, has always been a big part of spring for me!

Awesome shots in your slideshow Stuart! I've never been close enough to hear them. Well done!

Fantastic slide show!! Having the audio is great as the call of Black Scoter is one not heard by a lot of folks. Thank you for sharing, Stu.
