Harlequin ducks are rare breeding residents of Yellowstone and are found in only a few places in the early summer. Le Hardy Rapids is the most accessible place to see them. They are attracted to this rough water where they repeatedly fly to the top of the cascades and float and bounce down through foaming waves. Their common name comes from their coloration of wild patterns like the paint of the clowns and pantomimes of the stage. They often dive to feed, turning over stones looking for aquatic insects and small fish.
