I think this is a Hooded Merganser, had to wait about two hours for them to come out of the reeds before I could get a shot.

Thanks for the compliments and looking Ed, Iggy, and Bambi, I had talked to a pro nature photographer and as he said you always need to have patience and let the wildlife come to you. You cant go chasing it.

Nice capture of a very nervous hard to capture species.
You can find a very cheap blanket blind just to throw over you and that will help immensely. All thats needed is to break up your human outline.

Nicely captured. Worth the wait I'd say.

In case you still weren't sure. You absolutely identified it correctly.
