"THE NOT SO COMMON - COMMON GOLDENEYE"

Common Goldeneye (Male) - 8 Photos

 

Common is, of course, a word defined as "the most known or the most frequently seen" and is often used in nomenclature of plants & animals. 

 

It can also be used in a derogatory sense,  inferring cheapness or inferiority. 

 

While pursuing opportunities for photos of the more infrequent sighting of the Barrow's Goldeneye, this particular male Common Goldeneye came close enough in to the shore line to capture some photos, which detail the finer attributes of this little bird.

 

Like the Barrow's Goldeneye, this little diving duck is one tough bird. It dives in the frigid waters for fish & can hold its breath from up to 10 to 30 seconds. Take a moment to review some photos of the Common Goldeneye and see if you agree that the "Common Goldeneye" is not so common. :)
