This lovely couple (which I have never seen before) may have found a perfect home for breeding, if this weren't Massachusetts. However, with temperatures extremely mild, Mr. and Mrs. Hooded Mergansers are finding the waters quite nice and have decided to stay a while. Their presence would indicate that we have some fish in these waters. I will stop back from time to time to see if they make a home or are merely transients. I suspect the latter.
