Harlequins and Barrow's Goldeneye, Iceland

Two of the target Birds for most birders visiting Iceland are these
Birds. Of the two, Harlequin is far more widespread and relatively
easy to see. I saw Barrow's Goldeneye at Lake Myvatn only,
where as Harlequin was at many coastal, an inland sites.

Red-necked Phalaropes, Iceland, May 2013

Some images of Phalaropes taken on the west/north coasts of
Iceland. It was a real treat to watch them at such close range
and especially the antics of the females, trying to secure a male,
the term 'dog on heat' comes to mind.
