Bird – Common Merganser

This duck is an adult female Common Merganser.  I don’t recall ever seeing such a duck near where I live, but they were abundant on our visit to Glacier National Park last year.

The Common Merganser has a long bill with serrated edges and a hooked tip to help grip slippery fish, a favorite food.  Isn’t her spiky hairdo so stylish?  🙂
