December 22, 2017 – Hooded Mergansers

This morning I was getting in a little last minute Christmas Shopping in (we’re expecting a couple days of wintery weather before Santa arrives) when I stumbled upon a couple beautiful Hooded Mergansers.

I never seem to get very good photos of this shy little bird . . . as they immediately swim away when I approach.  But today I was able to hide behind a snow bank and photograph the male.  Didn’t do as well with the female.
