Nature Walks – More Common Goldeneyes

Lately our lakes have been seeing more and more variety of ducks than we have in past years. I LOVE IT!!!!! Some of the other ducks we have been seeing a lot more of are the Common Goldeneyes. They are beautiful. I see more males than females, but every now and then I see them both swimming around together.

A male Hooded Merganser sharing the lake with a Common Goldeneye.

A common Goldeneye and a female Mallard sharing the lake together.

And every now and then, I even see both the Common and the Barrow’s Goldeneyes swimming side by side.

Have a great and ducky day.
