Gee, I Wonder Why They Call It A “Goldeneye.”

    Now that my pond has melted we have begun to spot some waterfowl taking advantage of the open water.  Yesterday as I was about to walk Kona around the pond I noticed a pair of Barrow’s Goldeneye swimming and diving on the pond.  They are trusting ducks, so they didn’t take off as we approached, allowing me to take some photos.  

    Beside their unique and distinctive body coloring, they feature bright yellow eyes.  I was surprised when I downloaded the photos on the computer, to see just how brilliantly yellow their eyes were.
