Hybrid Goldeneye / Hooded Merganser (Yr. 2: Day 62)

Had a unique experience this morning shortly after sunrise. While watching some ducks at the Rice Lake Dam just north of Duluth, I discovered a bird which was a bit odd. Enter into the equation a hybrid (or a “hybird”) between a Goldeneye and a Hooded Merganser.

Jean Iron’s blog on the same hybrid bird was helpful in making a positive ID.
