2021 has certainly started well. With few opportunities to get out, we have been very lucky. This instance at Burrard Inlet Vancouver required some waiting for rays of light in between the trees in behind. Not sure if it a camera effect but the unedited colouring is seen here and appeared more greenish/turquoise than I remember for this species.

male, adult, outside normal range

female, adult, outside normal range
Long Sault - The noticeable differences between the Barrow's female and the Common Goldeneye are a shorter bill that is yellow or yellow-orange, a more vertical head profile and darker head plumage. The head darkness is harder to separate from the Common in dull light.

Ottawa - One or two birds traditionally winter in Ottawa. I waited a while for this bird to swim close enough for a decent shot. This coastal species is an annual rarity in Ontario, with normally only a few reports each winter.
