These are waves rolling in on Lake Erie, not the ocean. The water was so rough I imagined you could drown just looking at it. The sky was a brilliant blue so all that brown is coming from the lake floor. These photos were taken at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area in Oak Harbor, OH. I think those are Lesser Scaup riding the waves but I can't be sure they aren't Greater Scaup. Either way it's a new bird for me. Do you get to count it if you can't ID it properly??
