Earlier while driving up the east side of Saint Albans Bay, I saw an adult Bald Eagle sitting out on the ice so I decided take a peek at the water. I pulled down onto Deslaurier Drive, and found ~700 (conservative) Common Goldeneye along the edge of the ice pack (relatively close to shore, giving really great looks through the scope). After sorting through them for a while, I picked out 2 adult male and one adult female Barrow’s Goldeneye, as well as one Barrows x Common hybrid male. I then drove over to the west side of the bay (parking on Lakeview Drive) and found another 230 Common Goldeneye also along the edge of the ice, with a female Barrow’s and a Common Merganser mixed in. A third year Bald Eagle had also joined the adult on the ice by this time.
