Jon Leland and I first saw this duck with a small flock of Scaup on April 13th and we initially thought it was a female. (Is this the same duck as the Cowlitz River duck?) I've heard both on this particular duck. So far a vote for a sub-adult male and several for female, all trusted birders who post on Tweeters. I have pics (see link below) on birdfellow if that's helpful but I would love to know which it is and the field markings or lack thereof which define its gender and age.

I'll re-post the link.
