Saw 15 common mergansers here in Saltons Cove in open water (what the Innu call "ashkui") Much of surrounding Goose Bay was freshly frozen over so I had to ice-break and follow leads in my kayak. Crunching ice against the fibreglass hull of my kayak was noisy which flushed the skittish mergansers. Saw black ducks and a bald eagle here on the same occasion.
