Hi everyone! Oops, this is late, usually I schedule these posts so they come out at a certain time. I didn’t hit the schedule button. Sigh. I’m still learning, usually I just write and publish. Here we are with the female “common goldeneye”, there are two in this pic, with the brown heads and gray bodies, with one male. The female nests in holes in trees, usually left over from a pileated woodpecker, just like the merganser. So they can be quite high off the ground again and once again the little ones jump out of the nest and onto the ground, no matter what the height, then follow the mother to water, usually a lake or river that has abundant food and clear water. The female lays generally 6 to 9 eggs. I hope you have a great day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
