Subject: [obol] Hooded Merganser
This afternoon I watched a female hooded merganser foraging in Alsea Bay at the Eckman Lake outfall. Apparently, she was famished as I watched her capture and eat 8 three-spin stickleback fish and 1 crab in 6 minutes and 14 seconds. She was still actively foraging when I left.
