Scaup mounted in a swimming position with head turned slightly toward its PL side. Legs are kicking, with PL leg close to body and PR leg stretched backwards. Bird is not attached to a mount, but has a ledge where the dorsal part of its midline is wider than the ventral side, so that it sits in a hole-type mount.
