Hooded Mergansers Skate Across Sapsucker Woods Pond
A pair of Hooded Mergansers skate their way across Sapsucker Woods Pond. Adult males are black above, with a white breast and rich chestnut flanks. The black head has a large white patch that varies in size when the crest is raised or lowered, but it is always prominent. Females and immatures are gray and brown, with warm tawny-cinnamon tones on the head.
