BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

FEMALE HOODED MERGANSER

25 Comments

This female merganser stood out among the other ducks on the lake. She seemed to be the lone merganser swimming alongside the mallards and wood ducks. She didn’t display her crest and with no mate nearby I thought she looked like a young one. Hooded Mergansers are small ducks and are divers not dabblers. Although we didn’t see her catch anything while we watched her, she certainly was trying.
