Yes, Hoodies are back:  I came across a dozen (10 males and two females) in the Crabbs Branch pond in Rockville a week ago (10/30).  This pond regularly has Hooded Mergansers throughout the winter when it's not frozen. 

I also saw 6 Common Mergansers (all hens) on the Potomac River above Swain's Lock in Montgomery County just 2 days ago.  Of course, this is a species that breeds in small numbers along the river.

Four HOME yesterday evening on the small stormwater pond at Marriott HQ in N Bethesda. Acting as if it were spring, 3 males dipping, raising their hoods, showing off for the one female. Fun to watch.
