Common mergansers

I just loved seeing these common mergansers on Lake of Bays last week on vacation. There were five of them, diving and swimming. Apparently the female hangs out with the juveniles all summer and the male takes off for some man cave somewhere or something. The female and young ones have rusty heads. The male has a dark green head.

Rusty and fuzzy, it seems. I have never seen one of these.
