My good friend and mentor John Martell gave me a heads up a couple of weeks ago. He said that a solo Common Goldeneye had been spotted right on Little Bay in Rockport, TX. He suggested that I get over there around 4:00 pm and try to get an image of this beautiful duck.
Common Goldeneye are pretty rare around Rockport. I had never seen one…and really looked forward to adding one to my list. I grabbed my Canon 7D and 400mm lens and drove over to Little Bay. Sure enough…I spotted this guy swimming around with some Pintails.
