Feb 14, 2013: Common Goldeneyes

Common Goldeneye. 2/14/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

This male was one of two Common Goldeneyes found on the open water at the south lake (Ada Hayden HP). (A female had been seen on the 4th and 5th of this month.) Goldeneyes are divers, so you may not see them right away. Also present were Greater White-fronted Geese (21), Cackling Geese, Canada Geese, American Black Duck (1 male), Mallards, Redheads (3 males & 1 female), and 1 Erv Klaas (adult male).

Goldeneyes are diving ducks and they nest in cavities of trees in the
northern spruce forests. This pair have been at Hayden Park for
several days.
