Hooded Merganser

Lophodytes cucullatus

Description:

A small-sized duck. Male and female can both be seen -- the male with the white and black crest, and the females with a poofy brown crest atop the head. These crests are collapsible, but when up, make the duck's head look rather large.

Habitat:

Found through southern Canada and the States. These guys were spotted floating along in the Humber River in Toronto.

Notes:

Migrate for short distances.
