Common Goldeneye - Bucephala clangula

Common Goldeneye are common where I hike along the Elbow River and some of these ducks choose to winter here. 

The autumn colour and setting was perfect for this female Common Goldeneye. 

The duck remained still enough that the photo includes a good reflection of the golden eye.  

This is a Common and not a Barrow's Goldeneye because the bill is black with no hint of yellow.
