Hooded Merganser Female 1 Reply The picture of this female Hooded Merganser was taken in the Bronx, New York. The picture of this Hooded Merganser Female was taken with the CANON EOS 7D and the CANON 100-400 lens.
The pictured Hooded Merganser is an immature male, not a female. Note the yellow eyes and all-dark bill, both indicative of an immature male.
I was searching for Merganser photos, and when I saw this one mislabeled, I thought you’d want to know.
