Duckling mortality in Barrow's Goldeneye and Bufflehead broods.
Perhaps because of their diet, goldeneyes aren't particularly tasty (although they're not as bad as you'd think), and besides that, by the time they get into my neck of the woods, it's cold.
My experience, and the experience of most of the handful of guys I know who hunt the birds, is goldeneyes almost never actually decoy to a decoy spread; instead they strafe it, like so many black and white jet fighters in formation.
We used the same procedure to test the relationship between nesting success and habitat characteristics for goldeneyes (sample sizes were too small for mergansers).
9 days (range = 14 Apr-24 May, n = 81) for goldeneyes and 7 May [+ or -] 1.
The reason for the unscheduled day trip was the arrival of a stunning drake Barrow's goldeneye on the Ythan estuary, about 15 miles north of the granite city.
The Barrow's goldeneye performed admirably, giving us tremendous views on an all too rare calm, sunny summer's morning north of the border.
Their secondary goal was harvesting a drake goldeneye.
A banded goldeneye is an anomaly, but trying to find out just how rare would prove particularly difficult.
