Spectacled Eider (Somateria fischeri)

There are several research projects on spectacled eiders underway. One project is designed to determine winter habitat and the causes of the population decline. This study uses satellite transmitters to track the birds to identify molting and feeding areas in the Bering Sea. Another project studies the impacts of lead shot poisoning and environmental contaminants on the eiders.
