    We have killed surf and white wing scoters, but this is the first common(black) scoter we have boated.

    So is this one a common or a surf? I was told it was a surf but not sure at all.

    This one is a common/black. Yours is a surf scoter. Late hatch birds end up coming down with scaup and don't take the traditional route of their own kind.
