Hooded Merganser on the Fox River in Waukesha County on January 24, 2020

One of my birding stops today provided nice views of a male Hooded Merganser. It was hanging out with some Mallards along the Fox River in Waukesha. A few times it dove for something to eat and came up with a crayfish. The weather was misty with a few flurries mixed in, mild temps around 35 degrees with no wind. Images were taken on January 24, 2020.

Mr. Good Looking!

Cruising around off the ice…

Duck talk!

Tosses it around the get the right end to go down first…

Looking at me I guess…

    Unbelievable shots! Those designs with the river’s reflections are so beautiful. I want a poster of the that stare! Thank you so much. Always a great way to start my day.

    Is there a Pulitzer prize for wonderful photos? Thanks so much. Have been searching for the Meganser today but thought I saw you looking for the Albino squirrel.
