Common Merganser, Female standing at water’s edge

Buy this picture

This large Common Merganser was standing in the grass at the edge of the water on Merritt Island, Florida. This diving duck is so huge I stopped to take her picture, assuming it was a Goose! In fact, she is probably only somewhat smaller than a Canada Goose. I infrequently see the Common Merganser in Florida!
