A number of days ago I was walking along the northern edge of Shoreline Lake when I saw the male Barrow's x Common Goldeneye and a Common Goldeneye close, right next to each other -- but I forgot my camera. Today, at about the same place I saw a male Barrow's and a male Common Goldeneye swimming side by side. If you enlarge the 2 attached photos you can see three attributes of the Barrow's: 1) The more forward-thrusting top of the head, 2) the smaller, slightly upturned bill, and 3) the darker upper part of the folded wing, ending in a downward pointing spur.
Just before quitting I found the immature Snow Goose right next to the path at the southeast corner of A1. See photo.
