Eider Duck (in moulting) {Somateria mollissima}

It's hot, too hot for him. I never say 'it is too hot', in this country you should never use that word, lol.

  23. We have eiders that breed off of our waters here. There funny shaped heads and beak
    make for easy identification when they are off in the distance. Great shots.
