Hanging out near the Ring-necked duck was this cool looking Hooded Merganser.  I initially thought it was a female, but then based on the yellow eyes and the dark beak I realized it was a juvenile male.  I love the hairdo!

The other duck that was nearby was a female Bufflehead.  Quite a unique group.  Too bad I didn’t get a decent shot of them all together.
