Hooded Merganser

Lophodytes cucullatus


The first pic is a male, at the second both, male and female. Black head and dors, yellow eyes (male), with a narrow white patch over the lower breast and belly.


Spotted in the Reservoir, Central Park, New York. Hooded mergansers are short-distance migrants, and they winter in the United States in regions where winter temperatures allow for ice-free conditions on ponds, lakes, and rivers.


Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Aves Order: Anseriformes Family: Anatidae Genus: Lophodytes
