The Hooded Merganser

This past weekend Kate and I went on a lovely jaunt in Sessions Woods in Burlington, CT. The weather was great, the sun was out, and the birds were singing. We got to check out a crowd of 20-30 ducks in an awesome waterfowl blind. We were equipped with my new Nikon binoculars (not a shotgun), so the view was great. Our favorite ducks were by far the Hooded Merganser. Check them out.
