Mergus serrator (F)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|It's not often that you can get a snap of ducks flying below you and sea level ... but that's exactly the case in this composition. |
Deep waterways that have carved out over the centuries from The onrush of tidal waters in the Bay of Fundy have, over centuries, carved out these deep waterways through salt marshes where seabirds can fish & loiter in virtual obscurity.
The Red-breast Merganser is a large diving duck with a long, thin bill with serrated edges that helps it catch fish. They average 51–62 cm (20–24 in) long with a 70–86 cm (28–34 in) wingspan. The male has a dark head with a green sheen, a white neck with a rusty breast, a black back, and white underparts. Adult females have a rusty head and a greyish body. The juvenile is like the female, but lacks the white collar and has a smaller white wing patch.
Species: M. serrator
