Greeting Card: Welcome to the World, Mergansers
Greeting Card, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″.
Back caption: A Hooded Merganser mom makes her nest in a tree hollow, and lines it with her own soft feathers. The ducklings leap boldly to the ground when only 1 day old. Mom escorts them to water and keeps them close for warmth and to protect against eagles and other predators.
