We do see Harlequin Ducks in Washington State on the coasts and in Puget Sound, usually during Winter, but I've never managed to see one here. So it was a thrill to find several of them hanging out in Skagway.

I spotted this pair while crossing the pedestrian bridge to Yakutanina Point Trail:



The female caught a fish and went on land to consume it:



While she ate, the male swam back and forth nearby in a protective manner:



Later, along the trail, I came upon half a dozen more Harlequins hanging out on the shoreline. A very fine morning indeed.
