Brazilian Merganser

Mergus octosetaceus Vieillot, 1817

The Brazilian merganser is a South American diving duck in the Mergus genus. It is one of the six most threatened waterfowl in the world, with possibly fewer than 250 birds in the wild and a few kept in captivity in Brazil. The origin of its name is from its long, sharp-edged beak that has a great number of teeth-looking edges. Source: Wikipedia
