Mergansers

What a treat to watch the mergansers
swimming in the ocean yesterday afternoon...
so serene was the sea.

Lori ann,
I'm not sure if they are in your area. They are quite unique looking with their feathery caps blowing in the breeze! (reminds me a little of Woody Woodpecker)

Gigi,
I'm always so thrilled to see the mergansers. I love to watch all of the winter sea birds...the loons and grebes (very cute little ducks) and the eider ducks!
