Today hubby and I were down by the Big Qualicum River and spotted these Harlequin Ducks. These ducks can be found by fast-moving water, the Harlequin Duck breeds on fast-flowing streams and winters along rocky coastlines in the crashing surf, which exactly where Big Qualicum River is located. The female are the shabby brown and of course the male is the colourful duck. They are very nice to look at.
