Photo'd this bird in Acadia NP in freshwater. Thought Common Merg until it came closer. Now, not sure. Hybrid? Showed to a ranger that is a lifelong birder and he, too, was unsure. HELP!!!!
Photographed this at Seney NWR in U.P. Michigan on July 20th (see attachment). Having trouble identifying. There were no other ducks in association other than ones that looked exactly like this one. Thanks for the help.
