Hooded Merganser in Waukesha County Wisconsin on November 7, 2021

One of my birding stops today provided excellent views of a male Hooded Merganser in Waukesha County. It swam around with some Mallards, ate and did some preening too. A beautiful bird with partly cloudy skies, light winds and mild temperatures. Images were taken on November 7, 2021.

    Nice Jim. I haven’t imaged many birds this year. As a backyard birder it seems their numbers are way down. Almost zero migrants this spring.

    I love the hood with a breeze photo.
