I headed down to the river today to see the Bald Eagles. They weren't there but I noticed this handsome fellow floating down towards me. The male Common Merganser. He is a diving duck and was patrolling the section of the river near the falls. This is where the ice is always broken and he can get underwater access.
Not to long afterwords, two females appeared. Once they saw me they flew away towards the far side of the river and the Common Goldeneyes.
