Three Mergansers

Some people get excited about the Three Tenors. Me, I'm a Three Mergansers kinda guy. Today at Peace Valley on my way into the office, I finally found a female Red-breasted Merganser in with the 3,200 Common Mergansers that have been building in numbers there all week. And as I was scoping out the Canada Goose flock on the far side of the lake, a pair of Hooded Mergansers flew by. All three North American merganser species at one spot. Nice!

Very cold today with a storm moving in after lunch. Birds were very active at the feeders at work, but nothing that hasn't been around for the last couple weeks. There are some really nice Black-capped Chickadees in with the resident Carolina Chickadees. I'll have to get some pictures.

Daily List: 35 species (175% of Bird RDA)
2008 List: 222 species
BIGBY List: 50 species

No pictures....???? I think we have all three here but never seen them together. I am kind fond of Mergansers too. They are shy and hard to photo.
