I live in Jefferson County just across the Hood Canal Bridge and on Monday, 2/5, there were at least 3 dozen common mergansers .... male and female, that did the chasing and churning up the water .... incredible speed and such fun to watch. I did get some video, but poor quality.

Subject: [Tweeters] merganser flock Lake Washington
I was taking a walk at lunch and birding today on the shore of Lake Washington (NOAA Sand Point, next to Magnuson Park). I was counting coots and ducks when this flock of birds came rushing in from the north. No fewer than 40 common mergansers (mostly males) swooped in and landed in front of me. I've never seen so many mergansers at one time before. Sadly, no camera.
