Common Goldeneye again, Wilcox Park, Milford CT 6/25/17

Common Goldeneye again, Wilcox Park, Milford CT 6/25/17

Relocated this individual yesterday near WilcoxPark, and photographed him this morning (6/25/17).  Probably same individual as one reported on 5/15/17.  Must be a Common Goldeneye from overall shape (note round-dance head, for example), but still is in what looks closest to a juvenile plumage.  Note naked shafts of flight feathers, evident esp in first photo and video.
