Red-breasted Merganser

This Red-breasted Merganser looks like an ‘80 retro duck. But all kidding about the punk hair aside, they are one of our winter residents here in Gloucester. Soon, it will warm up and they will head of to breed throughout Alaska and Northern Canada.

Neat looking duck. My daughter who is an avid birder no doubt has this one on her life list.
