I just read your comment to Ramona. Now I find that so interesting. I will be up your way in May ... just south a wee bit.. but there are Mergansers in the Estuary there.
@Brian replied: Your timing may be very good. Sources are indicating that migratory birds are beginning to show up in Washington State. British Columbia is not far away. A neighbor spotted today a varied thrush, his earliest siting since the late '80's.

They may be called 'Common'... But they are certainly beautiful.

one of my fav ducks..have not seen many so far this year..fine capture.
@Brian replied: We have a good supply of mergansers, in addition to to the common variety we also have red breasted and a few hooded mergansers. The thing about any of these birds, their presence seems to indicate to other birds that there is food in the area. If you are lucky, a parade of birds will come by.

At high tide, a family of common mergansers cruising into a the mouth of a flooded stream...sunlight filtering through overhanging trees. North end of Mitkof Island, Petersburg, Alaska.
