Barrow’s Goldeneye Territorial Behavior

This young Barrow’s goldeneye is already perfecting the art of being a jerk as he is crouched down low, on the prowl, and has just recently cleared the pool of all other ducks! This is a typical behavior for this species as it is quite common for an incubating female to do this during the nesting season. Much like their close relative the bufflehead, they are beautiful but can quickly rule the pond at any given moment!
