Birds to brighten your day: Part III

American Wigeon and Hooded Merganser in Norwalk, CT, Feb. 2013.

Back-to-back mergansers today with a hooded merganser commingling with American wigeon. Yesterday was a common merganser with mallards. Ducks often form mixed flocks, particularly in smaller bodies of water.

(Repeat text from yesterday:) With many of us working from home or otherwise “physical distancing” as we combat COVID-19, I figured I’d start a daily series of photos showing different bird species together. Why not? Maybe it will brighten somebody’s day to see commingling bird species each morning as we’re all stuck inside.

Here’s a bonus shot of hooded mergansers with a redhead.
