Mergansers landing

Recorded April 30 2006 at 20:43, dusk.

Beaver Lake
Northern Oregon Coast Range

A small flock of eight or so common mergansers (Mergus merganser) gathers nightly on the sheltered water. One by one, they drop through the high canopy and swoop low with roaring wings and skim to a rest on the water.

What else do you hear?
