Hooded Merganser + Osprey

Finally the ducks are returning to their wintering grounds. This striking adult male Hooded Merganser with its long, narrow serrated bill was cruising about looking for small fish. Its black head with its contrasting yellow eyes, large white crest patch and reddish-brown sides provided for a stunning sight among the rest. (Left Click to Enlarge)

This yellow-eyed Osprey, or Fish-Eagle, with its deep glossy brown upperparts and white breast streaked with brown watches keenly for fish. Its white head with a dark mask across its eyes makes it easy to identify. (Left-Click to Enlarge)
