Common Merganser eye color

Drake common merganser. Red eye or brown eye? Look at all of the eye charts in taxidermy catalogs and carver catalogs and they are split about 50/50. These archives and 117 hits on the internet tell you every color in the drake common merganser except the eye. Can any of you breeders help with the proper eye color for the drake common merganser?

Common Merganser drakes have a brown eye. Red-Breasted Merganser drakes have a red eye, that's probably part of the confusion! Hope this helps!
