Common Mergansers Upon a Rock

I hadn't been checking the upper portion of the river very often this summer so I decided to wander along its Pine and Cedar laden shores yesterday afternoon. The trees gave me camouflage and sheltered my presence allowing me a leisurely paced photo opportunity. Beautifully arranged upon a large rock in the middle of the river was this group of female and juvenile Common Mergansers.
Then later, while watching them slowing slide into the river and swim upstream; I was able to count 14 in all.
