Can You Identify this Bird?

Yesterday I confessed to not being much of a birder. Well, here today is living proof. I took several photos of this duck at Chincoteague. I liked the appearance of this bird because it looks like its hair is standing up!

Can you identify this bird? If you can, please let me know. Thanks!

  1. Could it be a Hooded Merganser?

  2. Bob,
    It is a female hooded merganser.

  3. Thank you very much, Coy!

  4. We get to photograph some of these in the spring. On second thought I think I have only video of them. The drakes are exceptionally beautiful.
