Two breeding males and one that I think is an immature male. Their striking markings are unmistakable. I see these beautiful sea ducks at this location quite often. They have many other common names as well (see the tags on this spotting). They are sexually dimorphic, and females look for nice plumage when selecting a mate.
In the harbor near town. Sea otters, other ducks, and gulls like to hang around this area in the winter months.
