Glimpsed some common mergansers out in the middle of the south end of Lake Dunmore this morning, so I just went back with my binoculars. Very glad I did because I added Hooded Mergansers to my Life List! 8 male & 2 female commons and 2 pair of hoodeds. Also a pileated in the garden this morning and a lone(some) mourning dove. Shelagh in Leicester.
