Information about the Harlequin Ducks:
The Harlequin Duck is a smaller, ocean going species of waterfowl. They are also called painted ducks, totem pole ducks, rock ducks and mountain ducks. It is also called the "Sea Mouse" due to the very odd, mouse-like squeaks it can emit. These birds are native to the northern coastal areas of North America, on both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The birds feed by what is called "dabbling" - this mean the animal feeds mostly along the surface of the water, or by tipping head-first into the water to graze on aquatic plants and vegetation. While, overall, the Harlequin Duck's populations are stable, those on the Pacific side of North America are declining and are considered endangered. This decline is likely to habitat loss, oil spills and the building of several hydroelectric plants.
