I've never seen the merganser in person. Cute little guy! Guess they are accustomed to the snow.

Swimming and snow falls in the same sentence? Only a duck could enjoy that.

Great bird photo's once again.

How do these ducks stay warm enough to survive in weather like that? I know they're feathered, but still...

In France, when it's really cold, we speak of a "froid de canard"-duck's cold- :o)
This one is very unusual!
