Common Eiders (Females)

Copyright Lewis Scharpf

Somateria mollissima
Adult Adult Females
Pine Point near Scarborough Marsh, coastal Maine.
Note: Hunting reduced southern populations of the Common Eider in the Atlantic
to near extinction by the end of the 19th century. Populations appear to be currently
healthy although Arctic populations are declining.
The Common Eider is the largest duck in the Northern Hemisphere.
