Barrows Goldeneye at winter grounds

Húsönd – Barrows Goldeneye – Bucephala islandica

The Barrows Goldeneye has arrived at its winter grounds in Sog River, South Iceland.  Sog River is the biggest spring-fed river and does not freeze even in the coldest of weathers. It is the perfect place for the Barrows Goldeneye that prefers to stay in spring water  the whole year round. It is not a migrator and does not go out to sea like many non-migratory birds.
