Barrow's Goldeneye
Bucephala islandica

This male repeatedly kicked up a splash of water put his head back and made a croaking quack, as he swam around the lagoon. I assume this is a courtship display, though it did not seem to be getting him too much attention.

Location: Airport Lagoon, Sitka, Alaska
