FOY Hooded Merganser

Top Photo: One of four mergansers that arrived on October 31, 2013 in our wetlands.

The photo above was of the earliest hooded merganser arrivals I have on record here at the museum. This year’s first-of-the-year (FOY) hooded merganser arrived November 3, and as is often the case with a lone first arrival, he stayed close to the water’s edge and under the brush on the far side of the wetlands.

This year’s FOY hooded merganser.

More should be arriving soon.
