We watched this tiny single duckling swimming and diving for half hour in shallow water close to shore and saw no adults (none last night either). Perhaps it is the first of the clutch? Wish we could have stayed all day to see if more chicks fledged. Thought it was a harlequin initially but never seen them on lakes. Could it be a Barrow's Goldeneye?
