Here we see a pair of Eider ducks (Somateria mollissima) with the female being the brown bird making advances to the male. These aren’t birds we come across here on the BC coast, but they do over-winter in the northern parts of Alaska and across the northern extremities of Canada to the Atlantic coast. I came across this pair on a visit to the UK a few years back – like in Canada, a number of birds come down from Northern Europe to spend their winters on the ‘much warmer’ English coastline, whilst in Scotland they’re lucky enough to have a number of resident birds. You can see a few more shots of these impressive ducks in the new ‘Waterfowl‘ gallery.
