Mergansers - hooded or common?

Recommended Posts

Definitely not Hooded.  The bills are way too long, as are the bodies.  Adult male Hooded are in full colors now and don't resemble the sleeping bird at all.  I think Common but wait for better opinions.

EDIT: Sniped by those better opinions I mentioned.  I couldn't remember which species has the sparse crest vs. a shaggy one.
