it's allways a trill to spott such beautiful bird:)
INTERESTING FACTS Common Mergansers are the largest of the three merganser species in North America. Gulls often follow flocks as they forage. They wait for the ducks to come to the surface with fish, and then they try to steal their prey. Occasionally a Bald Eagle will attempt this. These large fish-eaters have serrated edges to their bills to help them grip their prey. Along with the Mews and the other Mergansers, they are often known as "saw-bills." A group of ducks has many collective nouns, including a "brace", "flush", "paddling", "raft", and "team" of ducks
Thanks Liam, they are usually very shy and never come out of the water.
