Riverside Park and MacArthur Island Birding Dec. 7, 2019

Went to find a Red-breasted Merganser that has been hanging around Riverside Park in the last days.  Couldn’t find it after checking twice.  Did see a nice River Otter that swam up the river along the shore and went right under the pier in Riverside Park.
