I heard this family before I saw it. They dove from the low tree limbs at the shore making quite an awkward entrance and big splash. Mergansers (tree ducks) are a tree-nesting species. They broke ranks (one long line) when they heard the dock creak as I crouched behind the boat to take the shot.

    Love this shot!!! We have Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks and their cousins, Mexican Squealers that are also tree-nesting ducks.

    Wonderful capture of these beautiful birds!! They look very striking against the blue water, and remind me of the grebes who nest on our pond nearby..
