Hooded Mergansers refound for Outdoor Wednesday

This is probably the first pair of Hooded Mergansers I had seen this spring a few weeks ago. I hadn't seen them since until today. Thry were standing on the edge of ice beside an open pool of water right beside the road.
The male Hooded Merganseris a striking handsome duck I think.

I wonder why in nature the males are always so darn good looking?? Doesn't seem fair! Hope you are having a great Outdoor Wednesday and Happy Easter to you!! Sherri : )
