The first common merganser of the year at Lake Nelson

Female Common Mergansers

Three female hooded mergansers with one female common

Mike noticed a female common merganser swimming among the geese by its distinctive dive this morning. Chris gets credit for spotting the female hooded mergansers. They all joined up for a swim.

Lake Nelson has the best fish


Female Hooded Merganser fishing
This female hooded merganser must have seen the kingfisher photos on the blog. She was fishing a few feet from where the kingfisher was last week.

Amazing captures and blog here! I initially noticed your "Merganser vs Fish" shots. That looks like some battle and even a huge fish staring down its captor’s throat!

So the bird was really able to win the struggle and gulp down that big fish okay?? Does the prey put up a good fight, if eaten, does the unlucky fish get swallowed wriggling/alive all the way as well?!
