The Barrow's Goldeneye is a species of sea duck that is found mostly in western parts of North America. They feed by diving underwater where they hunt for aquatic insects and other small animals, as well as vegetation.
Barrow's Goldenyes are named after the British statesman Sir John Barrow. These medium-sized ducks are similar in appearance to the Common Goldenye. The white facial crescent is more elongated in the Barrow's Goldeneye.
