Golden Pair

These two Common Goldeneye found each other and paired up. Here just off the north shore of the park they’re energetically taking care of the important business of preening. When they’re preening they show parts of their bodies we don’t normally get to see, like their underside and their paddle feet, which are also good for scratching.
