Description
Red-breasted Merganser male catching a marine worm at Point No Point in Puget Sound this spring. His lady friend is in the background, smoothing and preening her feathers. This photo was taken just before sunset on a day when it had been raining heavily. As a result an inlet pipe with fast flowing runoff from a marsh behind the beach was stirring up the bottom sediments and apparently the worms as well. It's always interesting to observe how quickly animals recognize and understand the opportunities around them.
