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!

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
