48. Red-breasted Merganser (Mergus serrator)

If there was a bird punk I think it would be a Red-breasted Merganser, with their mad 'hair' and red eyes I think they look a bit disreputable. They can be confused with Goosander especially the females, for me I find the easiest way to tell them apart is the bill, Goosander's is much thicker at the base. The crazy red eye is a good clue too if you can see it!

Fairly quick drawing tonight. Going to do some Yoga now!
