Duck With A Punk Haircut

    Every time I see a Hooded Merganser on the pond, it makes me smile.  They always look like a duck with a punk haircut.  Hooded Mergansers like to hang out in wooded lakes and ponds, so I guess that is what attracts them to my pond.  They nest in hollow trees or logs and decades ago I put some duck nest boxes up in several trees by the pond for the Wood Ducks, and the mergansers find them suitable as well.  I hope this female will use one again this year.
