Steller's Eider

this presumably 2cy male was the only Steller's we saw in a week and we only had 4 King Eiders; both species seem to have declined rapidly at Varanger in recent springs -- on my first first trip with Mark from June 10th - 14th 2005 we had 25 Steller's Eiders including 2 adult drakes and a total of 403 King Eiders including two flocks of 114 and 118 on one morning
