Harlequin Ducks (Histrionicus histrionicus) were observed breeding on a tributary of the northwestern arm of Hebron Fiord, Labrador. Peak population numbers were 11 males and 13 females on 17 June; females consistently outnumbered males. Breeding was confirmed by the presence of a nest with eggs and the presence of downy chicks.
