Common Mergansers in Norwalk

A few weeks ago, Larry Flynn had tipped my dad and I off about a pair of Common Mergansers that hung out on Deering Pond, In my hometown of Norwalk.  Since I am doing a sort of mini Norwalk “Big Year”, this was good news for me and I tried a number of times to see them, but never could.  Common Mergansers are not that uncommon Inland, and I HAVE seen them on the coast before, but never in Norwalk, and they are really beautiful waterfowl!

But I finally managed to catch up with them last Saturday!  They were not  all that close but through a scope the views were really nice!  I hope they stay to breed in the town, that would be fantastic!

Some really bad photos…
