A pretty big crop just to show how big a fish a Female Common Merganser can get down...
It always amazes me when they swallow it and float off..

Nice low angle shot. Good detail for a large crop. Bassomatic.

The serrated bill helps to hold the fish - but its still got to get down the throat! Amazing what they can gulp down, Dan!
