Mrs Smew (again)

I went to see Mrs Smew again.  Unlike last time she didn't catch a fish while I was watching but she did allow good views to see her sawbill.

It interesting that she prefers to hang out with the male goosanders who are also sawbills but are more than twice her size.  This a very distant photo but does allow a size comparison.  She has to paddle twice as fast to keep up with them.

  1. I noticed this behaviour. It was almost comical.
