I.D. Confirmation Needed


Ron Shields took this shot at the Kearny Marsh. He thinks it’s a female Red-breasted Merganser.

What do you think?  (Thanks, Ron!)

    Was its wing constantly in that position? It could be injured and that’s why it’s still here. Just a possibility.

    The merganser was in the process of taking to flight as I took the shot which explains the lift in one of its wings.
