Hooded Mersangers. The female is in the back.
love these ducks. They play, "duck" under water, pop up again.
I saw them last winter when I was after wading birds. This winter I have waited for the appearance of these little clowns.
I am out of town right now, took a few family photos tonight and many of my littlest dog. Can't work anything up. But these Mersangers were out there playing just Saturday.
This is for Tuesday, back to "regular" life in between some holidays and New Years.
click on the photo for a "large" size photo and see the water drops from their bobbing up and down in the water.
The front ones may be soft, I am on my daughter's computer with her new ultra sharp Dell monitor. have a good day! ginger
