Shore Birds

Red-Breasted Merganser - Don't you just love the spiky head feathers?

Red-Breasted Merganser - a little courting action
Bufflehead pair

Herring Gull - third winter (I might be wrong on this-corrections welcomed)

I think the one with grass in it's mouth is a Great Black-Backed gull-1st winter

I love those merganser head feathers! So much fun...and great capture of his courtship behavior. I don't get to see this bird too often, so I always enjoy merganser shots.
