Nesting Report Update

Right after posting the nesting report, I joined favorite companion on the chairs by the river with a glass of vino. She heard squawking coming downstream and we watched (for about 10 seconds) as momma merganser quickly led her brood past us.

... and my apologies to the resident Northern Cardinals for omitting them from the nesting report. Young from the first brood are around the feeders.

It's nice to see the momma Mergaser with the little ones.I see the mergamsers here in CT during the winter but don't normally see them other times of the year.-Nice shots.

Love the baby mergs! I miss them so much and can't wait to see them venture back down here. You are so fortunate to be able to see that. So cute!
