I had problems getting close up to this female Merganser as she made her way in the lagoon at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Common Mergansers are wary birds that are nervous when they are near humans and I was making this one nervous. Mergansers are interesting to watch, as they run along the surface of the water, beating their wings until they get airborne, not unlike a jumbo jet.
