Where shall I put this...thing?

By ladynewbury
I am not sure what this Hooded Merganser ( Lophodytes Cucullatus ) is carrying in its beak...it looks like a rock but I am not sure.
The hooded merganser is a diving predator that largely hunts by sight while under water.

A big thank you to all who voted and commented on yesterday's 'Any closer and I will scratch you' and especially to Sangram (Spkr51), Isabel (Chinga), Peter (handlerstudio), Jukka (kuvailija) & Harry (harrywatson) for their special awards. PM's sent to all. Pam
