Comments:
The largest group of Mergansers I have seen this winter. There were 40+ birds in total spread out along the edge of the remaining pack ice. There would be single birds, pairs and groups. There was a lot of diving activity, but only once was I able to confirm a catch. The video I took of one duck chasing another to try to steal its catch will eventually be on youtube. The catch appeared to be a Rock Gunnel.
