Male Common Merganser

My Saturday Bird this week is the Common Merganser (Mergus merganser) a member of the duck family. It is known as the Goosander in Europe.

With an off white body and black head with a green gloss this is a male. Females are mostly grey with a reddish brown head.

Photographed in early April close to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. There is still the remains of the winter ice on the lake.
