went to my "bird park" yesterday to enjoy the afternoon... it didn't LOOK like a lot of activity, but there was a lot going on. an unexpected visitor was this common goldeneye. they're not uncommon in the Puget Sound area, of course, but this was the first time i've seen one at that park... he was by himself - perhaps separated from the rest of his group - and just chillin'. he came in close enough to let me get some shots in good light... 7D, 550mm, 1/3200 @ f/7.1

Me too, the Males make that funny noise and throw their head back. We are quite lucky here in NE Scotland, we get a lot of them doing their mating routine together in the local Lochs.

Nice photos.

thanks! i did get some shots of this little guy tipping his head back, but i didn't hear any noises... almost looked like he was drinking! he'd dip his bill into the water right before tilting his head back, almost like he couldn't swallow properly otherwise.
