Hooded Mergansers Are Out of the Box
Early Monday morning seven tiny downy Hooded Mergansers jumped out of the nesting box into the lake with Mommy duck. They spooked when Paul walked down to get a picture, you can see them hurrying to catch Mommy as she lead them across the lake.
This is the first time we have seen the babies from the nesting box. We have had Wood Ducks in the past.
Our lake is full of pike and big turtles, good luck little duckies.
