I reported this yesterday on the Va-Bird , but want to make note of it here. Once again there are Common Merganser chicks on the Potomac. I saw them yesterday (4/16) in the area just north of the visitors center at Riverbend. They were in Maryland waters in the vicinity of the "new " Bald Eagle nest also in Maryland. This is now the second aerie above Great Falls. The 5 chicks were all close to Mom who was lounging on a rock in the sun. I think this is at least the 7th year they have successfully bred on this stretch of the river.
