Mystery Duck in S. Vermont


Recommended Posts

I was at a spot in Vermont where a Hoary Redpoll had been sighted.  I found that bird and it was a lifer for me.  While there I took some quick photos of a bunch of Common Mergansers and one Ring billed gull on the CT river just to document them.  Looking at the photos (I was trying to be sure of the ID on the Ring Billed Gull)  I noticed this darker duck in the group.  Smaller than the Common Mergansers, looks to have a dark bill and perhaps a light or white collar. All I can think of is a female Hooded merganser, but it just doesn't quite look right for that.  These birds were at quite a distance an these images are highly cropped and not in the best focus but perhaps good enough.
