I was now face to face with the castle moat, which was, indeed, very wide and very deep. Alas!

Common Merganser

Length--25 in.
Weight--2 lbs.

This species is larger than the red-breasted merganser, and is one of

more common than the red-breasted merganser on inland waters.

Flocks move in follow the leader style, low over the water.

The only call seems to be a startled croak.
