Hooded Mergansers in AV
- 18 December 2012 - Following a tip from Chris Bing, I stopped at the
Navarro Vineyards tasting room and wandered over to their pond. As
hoped, among the numerous Coots, Ring-necked Ducks, and Common
Mergansers, there was indeed a pair of Hooded Mergansers.
I also stopped at the Navarro Grade and glassed the mouth of the Navarro
River, which appears to have backed up behind the bar again. In
addition to the usual Coots and Buffleheads and Western Grebes, there
were several Common Goldeneye.
