With goslings. Despite being cute, these come out of domestic stock and are a problem. Their numbers are increasing rapidly in NE Texas.

Description

Mid day today I went birding at Lake Runnemede in Windsor, Vermont. This male Red-breasted Merganser was a surprise, and the first bird we saw. It flew in to the water right in front of us, but soon swam off.
They are a really neat species, told from the common merganser by their bushy crest, red breast, and the gray on the flanks.
