Two more Long-tailed Duck pics

I expect a few will think I must be wrong on the identification of this duck since I note it was on the Arkansas River, an unseemly place for a seagoing diving duck that is usually found on large lakes when found inland. So I thought I would supply two more pics.

The Long-tailed Duck was in the company of a male goldeneye, both staying near each other and separate from the other waterfowl on the river. And they both were diving in a deeper section of the river.

By the way, difference in color on these pics is due to the fact the sun was going down that started casting a golden glow on the river and the duck. SeEtta
