This male long tailed duck kept tipping forward to lift his rear up out of the water.
I am guessing it was a breeding display to show off his long tail feathers to their best advantage.
If any one out there knows differently please let me know.



Clangula hyemalis

Of all diving ducks, the Long-tailed Duck spends the most time under water relative to time on the surface. When it is foraging it is submerged three to four times as much as it is on top of the water.
