Hooded Mergansers;I search for them each spring and yesterday I found a pair. They were not in the usual location where I find them but rather in a roadside small flooded run off near a ditch. I love the colour and intensity of the golden, yellow eyes of the male. I think these pictures are interesting but they do not reflect the beauty of the male with his beautiful white-patched hood. The female is usually spectacular with her bad hair
day fluff, however I am sure I will find these beauties in their usual location in a day or two and I shall get more pictures. Until then; these photos to enjoy!
