What's This?

Picture 4
Male Red-breasted Merganser

Photo taken by Adrian Binns in Gloucester, Cape Ann on the New England trip Feb 20, 2005

This is a male Red-breasted Merganser showing a look and pose that is probably not to familiar to most of us. Note the 3-4 black feather shafts on the secondaries, that are located towards the tertails. These can also be seen in flight.
