They need to get onto the Merganser bandwagon!! However, I love them and their fabulous plumage just the same. Great photo!

I have seen a loon going after merganser chicks on Lake Meech. The mother hustled them to shore. I doubt the loon would see the larger, basking mergansers in the previous photo as food.

I’m horrified to think that Loons might eat Merganser chicks!! Are they really part of the Loon diet?

The mother merganser seemed to think so.
