So, with some imagination can't you see them in the Golden Book of Fairy Tales?
The Barrow's Goldeneye on the other hand is a rare visitor hereThere are several subtle differences, the most obvious one being a crescent patch on the face rather than an oval one.
I almost saw one the other day on the Connecticut River at the Vernon Dam, but it was just out of sight, my view blocked by a patch of tall cattails. So for illustration i am left with a photo I took of a captive bird in a zoo a couple of years ago.
Wish me luck! I am sure eventually I am going to see a real wild one!
