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.

Skate Out to the Picnic Table

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge and to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things found on a picnic table or in a park prompt.

There’s nothing on this picnic table but it is in a park. Strangely, I’m writing this sitting in the same park using the WiFi hotspot as we have no internet connection at home.
