I have wanted a decent photograph of a Hooded Merganser for a long time, but never seem to get one. We stopped at Great Pond to see if there were any birds around and there he was.
The Hooded Merganser is quite distinctive with its black head with a distinct crest and large white patch when raised and bright yellow eyes. Gorgeous bird, don’t you think?
Have you ever seen a Hooded Merganser?
