Last night (Friday) at dusk, I waited along the shores of Lake 
Runnemede in Windsor for the ducks to come in for the night. Pretty 
good showing with lots of courtship behaviors by the mergansers, 
including the neck stretching display by the Common Mergansers 
accompanied by their deep, gutteral call.
