Barrow's Goldeye

the Barrow’s Goldeneye, a diving duck, who migrates to Maine for the winter! Many birds and people migrate south to warmer climates during the cold time of year.

How cold it must get where these ducks spent their summer if Maine is a warm place to spent the winter?


In this video we look at key identification features, so YOU  can identify the Barrow’s Goldeneye correctly in the wild. Talk about range & habitat, diet, reproduction, what ducks do all day, and what type of threats they face.


Visitors are welcome at Hirundo daily from dawn to dusk.  Gate 1 is closed for the winter season. However, you may park at the gate and walk in.
