Goldeneyes in the Summer

Sharing is caring!

It took me a bit of studying to identify these ducks. Turns out they’re  common goldeneyes. I had never come across goldeneyes in the summer when many are young and it’s not breeding time. They look totally different than they do in their winter plumage. Goldeneyes spend the winter in Michigan, but head north for the summer. I was excited to find them visiting a northern Minnesota lake.

Black Duck Lake, Minnesota.
