Hooded Mergansers and Wood Duck at Poway (Taylor) Pond

Lisa Ruby


I went down to Poway Pond around 3:30 this afternoon and immediately spotted a pair of Hooded Mergansers on the private pond (sign says it's called Taylor Pond). Before I left the male Wood Duck made an appearance. The Mergansers disappeared while I was walking around the public pond. Don't know if they flew off, or if they were hiding where I couldn't see them. When I first saw them they were cruising out in the middle of the pond.
