- Region wide FC migrant, though most locales have no more than U?
- Difficulty distinguishing this species from the more common Greater Scaup may mean this species is somewhat under reported?
- Breeding frequency and extent?
SEAK QBR Mentions:
- F2016: Count of 93 at JNU, second largest local count ever
- Glacier Bay/Lesser Scaup: (edit)
- Haines/Lesser Scaup: (edit)

- Sitka/Lesser Scaup: Probably Uncommon in migration and through winter. May be under reported due to difficulty distinguishing from the more common Greater Scaup. Relative to Greater Scaup, Lesser Scaup seems to prefer freshwater, especially later in spring. Best observed on Swan Lake from fall through spring when there is open water or in the Channel with Greater Scaup. (edit)
