Interested in College in Alaska?

Hooded Merganser
Lophodytes cucullatus

This was the first time I had seen a hooded merganser. Connor and Rowan were in the car, so I had to try to quickly get a picture from the road while they waited. Unfortunately, the bird was a long distance away, so the picture is pretty poor.

Location: Starrigavan Estuary, Sitka, Alaska

Next: Buffleheads (Bucephala albeola)
