February 15, 2011
The other day I took a break from my art work to venture out into the outdoor world of the Upper Wind River country. Crossing the bridge by my house-studio I found a pair of Hooded Mergansers plying the waters of the river. We had a pair last year about this same time and I am guessing these might be the same pair. Last year was the first time I had ever seen hooded Mergansers. This is a real treat. They are a beautiful bird particularly the male as is so often found in the bird world.


  1. i have seen some small flocks near here, but only a couple times. There are more common mergansers around. I figured they must go farther north.

  2. I've only seen one pair out in the wild. So cool that you got to see these also!

  3. Love all the photos on your outdoor adventures.
    How exciting to go out into the wilderness and take photos like these.

  4. This is all gorgeous work. I wanted to let you know that the link from the Wilderness Art Challenge site is not good. It takes us to blospot.com (or something else)
