Counting a Barrow's Goldeneye

Watching the Barrow's Goldeneye Between Dives
Today's Christmas Count included a male Barrow's goldeneye, not always a common sight in these waters.  Spotted last year, he is back again this year to this rich source of crabs.

Twitchers have been showing up since the rare bird alert went out a few days ago. 
For over a century, Christmas Bird Counts have organized volunteers to collect data on winter bird populations.
