I saw this animal on my final hike in Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge a few weeks ago. I already miss going there, but expect I will go back for old times sake at some point. See if you can figure it out.
How’s this great clue for first clue luck?
I’ll tell you I’m a type of duck
But of the ducks there’re so many
Without more clues I could be any
So what kind of duck could I be?
You’ll find me in a group of three
By that I mean one of three kinds
Come on, think hard - use those sharp minds
It is quite clear from my hooked bill
I don’t eat plants; it’s fish I kill.
Upon my head I have a crest
With reddish band across my breast
Of course that more describes the male
My lady is a bit more pale
Fish eating duck? One of three types?
Come on and guess - let's earn those stripes!
and see if
I'm a red-breasted merganser
Did you get the correct answer?
When I first saw this dapper duck, he was on shore near a great blue heron that I was watching. The heron's photo is on the original post about this final hike, noted at the top of this post.
