Common Goldeneye

A female Common Goldeneye swam around Carleton College’s Lyman Lake for several days around 17 November 2018. Goldeneues thrive in cold climates, and generally prefer deeper lakes than at the college. They dive for aquatic insects in the summer, but broaden their winter diet to include fish, mollusks and other aquatic invertebrates.
