Known in english as Old Squaw, or the more politically correct name of Long Tailed Duck duck. The Inupiaq name for these ducks is Aahaaliq, and that is exactly how they sound Uh-haaaaaaa-lik.

Hello again - have been enjoying your photos - are the ducks near the river mouth or in the ocean?

Also, just wondering if you can smell the salt water smells of the ocean or is it too cold for most of the sea smells as yet?
