Both an adult male Barrow's Goldeneye and an adult female Barrow's were present at Canal Park in Duluth today, but they were not associating with each other. The male Barrow's was instead paired with a female Common, as first noticed by Mike Furtman who found the bird about an hour before I went down to see it. This male was clearly the same one which overwintered in Duluth (and which has done so for about five consecutive winters), as evidenced by its very short spur on the foreflanks. The female Barrow's appeared to be a new migrant, arriving with a sharp increase in the number of goldeneyes during the last day or two (from about 150 to over 500). Photos and further details of these two Barrow's are being posted to MOU Recently seen.
