Location: LeHardy Rapids, located on the Yellowstone River, Yellowstone National Park, WY
Harlequin ducks live along fast-flowing streams/rivers, frequently near rapids. Fractures, presumably sustained while diving for aquatic invertebrates in turbulent water, occur more commonly in this species than in any other duck. This image shows the unique markings present on male harlequin ducks.
