Common Merganser


Being from a fair bit south of their habitat, we don’t see mergansers very often.  This was one of about five that were flocked together on Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park.  I loved how she would paddle along with her face in the water, scanning, and then dive and swim REALLY fast along the bottom.  The water was clear enough to watch her go!
