This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from ten autosomal loci (Aph8, Aph16, Cmo7, Cmo9, Hhi5, Sfi10, Smo4, Smo6, Smo8, Smo12) and nucleotide sequence data derived from one mitochondrial DNA locus (control region). A total of 262 Spectacled Eiders were examined for this study. Samples were collected at Indigirka and Chaun River Deltas, Russia, and Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, Utqiagvik, Colville River Delta, Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. Samples used in the study originated from blood or feather samples collected in the field from live trapped birds or from tissue taken from dead birds.
