Bird Watching

Once the weather started getting cooler, we had some geese show up in the pond. Then these little fellows showed up. They actually show up in this picture better than without the camera. With the naked eye, at this distance, all you would see is a floating white dot.

I think they are called Hooded Mergansers. The white headed ones are the males. The brown are the females. Not only are they funny looking, they are funny to watch. They dip into the water as they swim.

They don't swim. - They motor - fast.
