This species breeds in the northern taiga of Europe and Asia. It needs trees for breeding. The Smew lives on fish-rich lakes and slow rivers. As a migrant it leaves its breeding areas and winters on sheltered coasts or inland lakes of the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, northern Germany and the Low Countries, with small number reaching Great Britain. On lakes it prefers areas around the edges, often under small trees. The Smew breeds in May and lays 6-9 cream-colored eggs. It nests in tree holes, such as old woodpecker nests.
