hooded mergansers

Twenty-three avian enthusiasts participated in the WLT's annual duck walk along the Charles River. The group traveled from Shaw's at 130 River Street to Moody St. and back. They saw mallards, a Great blue heron, ring-necked ducks, robins, a Hooded merganser pair, a ring-billed gull, a male bufflehead, and a black duck. We also saw a grackle but didn't get a photo. Thanks to expert birders Emily Szczypek and Bob Gaffney for leading the effort and sending photos. Thanks also to the Moretons and John Norton for providing other pictures.
