Hooded Merganser in Bay Farm, Alameda

Mark Featherstone

[Edit re link to photo] The Hooded Mergansers are still at one of the lagoons in Bay Farm. We saw them yesterday both morning and afternoon along with some Common Goldeneye, Scaups and the usual Mallards, Coots, Buffleheads, etc. I have only seen them in one particular stretch -- that length of the lagoon between Aughinbaugh Way and the Ferry Terminal, and much closer to Aughinbaugh.
