Haha, I witnessed the opposite.
MDB and I were paddling Henderson Lake, in the back bay where the Santanoni Brook comes in.
We spooked a family of Mergansers, maybe a total of ten of them, and they swam quickly ahead of us, with one little guy lagging behind and honking his little head off and trying to catch up.
Just about the time I was thinking he (or she) should be a bit more discreet, the honking stopped, and then there were nine.
Neither of us ever saw anything more than a bump in the water.
So I guess the predation goes the other way around too!
