A lone duck very different in color from other ducks that frequent this area. I am judging it to be a Lesser Scaup there is also a Greater Scaup and the differences are in the head shape and neck coloring. The Lesser Scaup having a purple color and the Greater Scaup more green. I feel certain it is migrating to it's home in the north after a winter vacation in Mexico or northern South America.
