Continuing on the topic of birds who like salmon, the common merganser loves them too! But first let me say I am not in favour of the naming protocol for anything that starts with ‘common’. This is a lovely bird and there is nothing common about it.
This is not a large bird compared to an eagle or an osprey. Probably 12 – 18″ in length. Thank heavens the Kokanee are not big salmon. I started photographing them a few years ago and finally got the ultimate shots this past spring.
But they are charming all the time as you can see in this shot.
I’ll be back with more soon.
