Hoodeds Have Arrived!

This past Tuesday, I suggested that our wintering hooded mergansers will arrive “any day now.” They have arrived!

Well, one of them has arrived. A lone male was seen this morning (Sat. 10/31) on the far side of the Wetlands, and what an eyesome creature he is.

Stay tuned, others can’t be far behind.

Happy waterfowling!


As I walked through the Wetlands an hour after posting this, I noticed two more drakes for a total of three male mergansers.

Also, saw a bald eagle soaring above and to the west of the Museum.
