Hooded Merganser

Hooded Merganser0787aI just love spring time, plants are starting to sprout up out of the ground, heck, there’s critters coming out of the ground too! Last week the snakes came out by the bucket load, and the muskrats were all sitting on top of the ice. The warblers are on their way, I just know it, but the winged creatures blowing through right now are the water fowl. Floaty birds of all shapes and sizes are out on the open water these days. I would love to get some close up shots of a Hooded Merganser with his big white head on full display, but for now I’ll have to settle for nice little fly by.
