Fowl Play/Watery Wednesday

Mute swan and hooded mergansers


Last Friday was another day with temperatures below freezing on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Likely the swan will stay here for the summer but the hooded mergansers (male on the left, female on the right) are just passing through on their way to northern Ontario.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

It looks like they're following the swan around. It's good to see the waterfowl out swimming again.

Many different type of ducks are always in the pastures with the Trumpeter Swan too.

So, the mergansers aren't imprinting on the swan?

You are so knowledgeable -- it is a learning experience to drop by each day. Beautiful catch!

I saw my first hooded mergansers on the weekend and I was so excited!( I might have to start one of those life lists)

Great shot, EG....at first glance I thought that could not be cignets!..and it wasn't...but sure thought so at first.

I can't wait for the weather to get warm enough for me to join the swans and ducks...

I don't know why they don't freeze solid right in their tracks!
