The lesser scaup is a small North American diving duck also known as the little broadbill or bluebill.

These are small ducks approximately 16" in length.  The males weigh about 1.8 lbs on average with the females a couple of ounces lighter.

They normally forage by sifting for mollusks and clams on the bottom mud.  They also will dabble for seeds and other parts of aquatic plants.
