Hooded merganser in natomas


lcr2sac
 

A male hooded merganser (and mate?) has been hanging out in a pond along Gateway Oaks Drive within the Harbor Oaks Apartment complex. Gateway Oaks Drive is the first street west of the I-5 / Garden Highway interchange. The apartment complex and pond are on the west side of the street about quarter mile from Garden Highway. The pond can be seen from Gateway Oaks. He is in with the mallards and wood ducks. The birds seem to be there on most days.
