male Hooded Merganser - Peter Beales

male Hooded Merganser – Peter Beales

There was quite a variety of waterfowl at Lock 19 this morning, February 14. I was able to identify two pairs Red-breasted Mergansers, two pairs of Hooded Mergansers, a White-winged Scoter, a Long-tailed Duck (female, I think), several Common Goldeneye and many Mallards. I’ve sent along a photograph of one of the male Hoodies.
