We have had so many ducks the past few weeks in the pond behind our home. Today, we had a new arrival. Known as the Hooded Merganser, this small duck (male and female photo above) breeds every year in Minnesota. The white strip on his head actually flares out into a large white crest for mating display. Unfortunately, it looks like he has found his mate so I have not seen his beautiful display..yet.
