Goldeneyes in Nuuksio National Park 28.6.2014.

The first two photos are of the same adult bird
and the third photo is of a chick.

I'm linking to Winged.

  4. Fantastiskt så mycket vackra fåglar det finns. Naturen i ditt förra inlägg är helt underbar med härliga, vackra bilder. Älskar speciellt mossa och vattenspeglingarna.

    1. Tack Ulla! Det var en speciell dag med regn, snö och hagel och slutligen ett alldeles underbart solsken.

  5. I don't see goldeneyes this time of year so have never seen one as young as the chick you photographed. We see them here in the Toronto area during the winter.

    1. Thank you EG! I didn't get very close to the chick. It was very shy. :)
