Hooded Merganser - Male

As I crossed the bridge over the Sudbury River where Cordaville Road and Pleasant Street meet in Ashland, Massachusetts, I looked East off the bridge and spotted a Hooded Merganser.  Luckily I had my camera with me, so I immediately parked, crossed over to Marathon Park and snapped this photo.

This small fish-eating duck immediately began swimming away and finally took cover in the reeds.  But not before I had my first confirmed sighting and photograph!  A great lunch break!
