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.
