This very striking sawbill originates from the SE of Alaska through some of the northern states of America, being most common in the Great Lakes region. Like other Mergansers it has a serrated bill in order to grip fish, which make up most of its diet, though it will also eat aquatic invertebrates such as Crayfish. It prefers to live by brackish and coastal waters in winter. It is the smallest of all the Mergansers.
