Port Washington Birding

Dad and I went to the Port Washington Marina and a couple other places birding.  Got definitely one and maybe two or three birds I haven't seen before, and some good pictures of ones I have.

Red-breasted Merganser Drake. New Life Lister!
Red-breasted Merganser Hen.
This pair of Ring-billed Gulls sitting on a PSA let
us within five feet of them.

Chubby-looking Ring-billed Gull.
I believe this is a young Greater White-fronted Goose.
Could also be a domestic-descended Graylag Goose.

We saw our first American Robin of the season, and then two more.
I don't know what this is, yet.  Two people have pegged it
as some sort of Scoter (although two different kinds), one
says it's a Common Goldeneye but she's got a funny
shaped head if she's a Goldeneye. We'll see later what
the consensus is.

These are not birds, but my dad made a deer grunt
to encourage them to look at us.
