A single male Hooded Merganser has arrived in the Wetlands. This is the first merg of the season and a bit early. Typically, the second week of November is when I start to look for them. If I don’t see any by the third week of the month I start to worry.

Staying beneath the willows on the far side of the Wetlands, the first of the season Hooded Merganser was a pleasant surprise today.

No need to worry, they’re here.
