Hooded Mergansers

Yesterday morning, I spotted a pair of Hooded Mergansers at the base of our Osprey nest platform.  I’ve photographed the Common Merganser and Red-breasted Merganser, but never got the opportunity with this merganser….until now.  And that gives me another new lifer!  🙂

I captured this last flight photo as they flew off into the morning’s sunrise.

A day can’t be too bad when you get another bird lifer!  🙂

    • Thanks Lisa! I’ve seen them couple times but didn’t get a photo so I was especially tickled that the photo didn’t come out too bad. 🙂 Re Suburdia, do a review on your blog for us when you’re finished, appreciate it, thanks!
