A Week of New Life Birds Begins with a Hooded Merganzer – Day 27

Well, just when I thought I’d seen my last “new life bird” for a while…

I see THIS guy over at Saquatucket Harbor!


A gorgeous male Hoodie!

I thought I’d seen one last year, but he was swimming alongside several Red-breasteds and I just couldn’t be totally sure from such a distance.

But several bird experts just confirmed it for me, so it’s officially a new bird for me!

And he’s not alone, there are MORE new birds coming to share…

Hopefully this week, the treasure hunt continues, woo HOO!  😉
