Common Goldeneye

On the Fox RiverJust one picture because they were on the other side of the river.
They always seem to be on the other side of the river when I visit.
I love this duck and hope to get a closer view of one soon.

Other birds seen on today's outing:
Male Cardinal
White Breasted Nuthatch
Downy Woodpecker
Red bellied Woodpecker
Mallard duck
Brown Creeper


  1. Nice shot. I hear what you are saying about other side of the river. That happens to me all the time. You still got a nice pic.

  2. Beautiful shot of the Common Goldeneye.

  3. Thanks ladies. Was a fun shot but hope to get closer in the future for more. Funny thing is if I walk to the other side of the river they swim to the opposite side ... harumph. Someday.

  4. Very pretty! I always worry about the ones that are in the water with the ice....they just look like they would be so cold!

  5. These are the unusual ducks I told you I saw at Paint Creek, now I know what they're called... thx
