At Mill Park along the Kennebec river in Augusta (Maine) a pair of mallards foraged last week.
The mallards at the Calumet Bridge
While wandering around downtown Augusta (Maine) last week we checked out the usual hordes of mostly mallards at the northwest side of the Calumet bridge spanning the Kennebec river. This is a small sample of the typical group.
Merganser on the Kennebec
Among the usual suspects (mallards, gulls, ospreys, eagles, sturgeon, and cormorants) typically found near downtown Augusta along the Kennebec river was this hooded merganser.
