Barrow’s Goldeneyes close to Spanish Banks


Barrow’s Goldeneye (male) | Garrot d’Islande | Bucephala islandica: Taken on Spanish Banks in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada, on March 12, 2016, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR. Not baited, called in or set up.

The photo below is one of the few shots of this bird diving that I have been able to get that showed it before it plunged completely (or partially) in the water.

  • Top: ISO 400 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/1000, cropped for composition
  • Bottom: ISO 400 | 500mm | f/7.1 | 1/1600, cropped
