Nature Walks – Hooded Mergansers

Our Mallards are the most prolific of our ducks. We see them almost everyday. The Hooded Mergansers are probably the other ducks we mostly see on our lakes or ponds. The males are so gorgeous, especially when they are all puffed up. The females look good too, but they are not nearly as colorful, which is often the case with birds. The Mergansers are much smaller than our Mallards, but just as beautiful. We also get some Common Mergansers, but strangely enough, they are not nearly as “common” on our lakes or ponds as are the Hooded Mergansers. πŸ™‚

Have a great day and make the most all your days.
