Cauga una?

I know I meant to post again yesterday, but yesterday was really bum. I won't go into it, but after a little bit, I didn't at all feel like writing anything. That said, last week I left you with a grainy video and a picture of this guy!

He isn't a duck, but the Horned Grebe Podiceps auritus. It's rare to see them fishing on my pond or lake, since they tend to like fish more than insects, and there isn't any fish that I know of.

Back to the collection, here's a few skins that came with some skulls I photographed.
Endemic to Alaska, but not all of Alaska. Sorry for the pelage on the side. Someone didn't store this one properly.
For some reason, that picture looks a little... green. The table is supposed to be a hard black.
