Female Harlequin Ducks
Histrionicus histrionicus

I think that if these were the only birds I had seen, it would have been difficult for me to identify them. However, there were a number of the more distinctive male harlequin ducks around, so I was able to see that these were female harlequins.

Location: Lincoln Street Beach, Sitka, Alaska
