Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-breasted Merganser

(Mergus serrator)

Where: Door County, WI • Chambers Island

Notes: This appears to be a first year adult male Red-breasted Merganser. The fading speckling of tan colored feathers on his face are the last few remainders of his juvenile plumage. Despite his incomplete molt, he seemed to have already attracted a female companion (lower right). The pair swam along slowly just off the beach shore in search of crustaceans and small fish in the shallows of Green Bay. My wife and I sat in the blind awaiting just such an event, although we had really hoped to photograph a Common Merganser, but this species was just as welcome. They made two passes back and forth in front of our position, which provided us a couple of good opportunities for a burst of shots. Sitting still in the blind proved to be a good strategy, as it both provided us from being discovered by both the birds and the mosquitoes. What a relaxing way to spend a spring morning with my best friend, a comfortable chair and a good cup of coffee, doing what we love to do together.
