Common Merganser #5

Ducks, Mergansers, Common 005

A family of Common Mergansers that was moving up the Chenango River a couple weeks back that I saw while kayaking down the river that day.

  1. Interesting bird we never see, are these all females and juveniles, as I can not see the brightly colored male? thanks for sharing.

    • There is one adult female in the picture in the front leading the group with the full brown head. All the rest are juveniles and at this point I cannot tell the difference between male and females at this stage in there development. The adult males are usually off on there own at this point.
