2 female hooded merganser
3 female common goldeneye

What other responses have you gotten?

Also at Hecla there is a duck (pic #2 below) that I believe may be a hybrid of hooded merganser and wood duck or mallard. Anyone agree? At first I thought it was a female common merganser, but they don't have bright yellow eyes. There's a wood duck that appears to have mated with hood merganser – they are always together - and I thought they were the parents. However, this hybrid swims between a male mallard and a female who also appears to be a hybrid (pic 3), so I have to assume they are the parents. There is another strange looking bird at the pond that looked at first glance to be a wood duck, but it's somewhat off (pic too bad to post). Two other birders looked it up one night and decided was a juvenile wood duck. However, there have been no wood ducklings observed out there this year, so I thought perhaps a brood of hybrids could contain several different looking offspring in one brood, and that these two birds may be from the same brood. Is that a possibility?
