Mr and Mrs Merganser

MerganserThese crested ducks are a male and female Red-Breasted Mergansers. (Mergus serrator)

The male is the larger bird on the right with the spiky black feathers. Interesting fact from the Peterson Field Guide, these ducks are said to be “usually silent,” except for the male’s “hoarse croak” and the female “Karrr.”
