I just spoke with Dave Wilson, the man who reported the Common Merganser and
chicks twice today and after quizzing him and looking at photos, he said what
he saw was a female Wood Duck and her chicks, which have been seen here earlier
I apologize for the false information I passed on before confirming myself; but
from his report early in the a.m., it sure sounded like a Common Merganser.

Subject: [TN-Bird] Common Mergansers in Pittman Center: with Chicks.
I just learned from my wife via telephone that our neighbor Dave Wilson saw the
female Common Merganser with 4 chicks this morning on the river by his house
about 7:15 am. He went in to call me and lost sight of them. He and my wife
Ruth are out looking for them and to get a photo. I'll post more details when I
can. I'm on the road to Knoxville, as a passenger while composing.
