Common Mergansers in the River

                             I was about mid- October when I  had commented to my husband that I hadn't seen any Common Mergansers in the river during the summer.  Other years ,sightings of these fishing ducks had been quite common.  Yesterday , while driving across the highway bridge I spotted three  female Mergansers in the river; turning into the parking area near the river I was able to get these pictures before, and as, these ducks took offf. This is an area where I have often seen this species previously.  I shall return to that location today and wait and hope I see them again!
