nothing more fun than gunning divers. You may have been seeing lots of immature drake goldeneye. There seems to be a ton of immature birds this year. They don't get full color their first year, so groups tend to seem hen heavy. I saw a group of 30 on the river a couple of days ago that had only 2 mature drakes, and a mix of about 50% hens and 50% immature drakes with the rest of the group.
