red-breasted mergansers

Mergus serrator


These are two of about six-eight ducks swimming in the area. The others swam away when they saw me, but these two just kept going about their business.


These were seen near in a small stream near the Charlestown Breachway in Rhode Island. It was good to see them given the massive destruction to the area caused by hurricane Sandy.
