We were in Windsor Sunday at the mouth of the Detroit river and there were a number of duck species and several bald eagles.
This male red-breasted merganser looked like a punk rocker with the wind blowing his crest

Mergus serrator

A large diving duck with a long thin bill, the Red-breasted Merganser is found in large lakes, rivers and the ocean. It prefers salt water more than the other two species of merganser.
