From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The common merganser (North American) or goosander (Eurasian) (Mergus merganser) is a large duck, of rivers and lakes of forested areas of Europe, northern and central Asia, and North America. It eats fish and nests in holes in trees. John James Audubon called this bird the "Buff-breasted Merganser" in his book The Birds of America.

Hello Jiri,
Excellent photo of this merganser in great sharpness and details and fantastic clarity. The light is gorgeous. Beautiful green water.

Hi Jiri!
Beautiful shot of this duck with a lovely contrast with green water. Details are a bit softer giving it a painting-like look. Thanks for sharing,
