No, that’s not a Merganser – but a cutie little shore bird. Last year we had 2-3, this year we have a flock of 10-20. This morning about 7 were walking around.
I like their tracks. All along the front of the house we have a path of tiny dots. Too cute!
I walked down because I saw 4-5 Mergansers swim over to the spot next door. I am getting a lot better at self control with physical excitement because I came around the corner of the boat house and saw this scene, and didn’t scare them away.
