Anchorage Area Rarity – Hooded Merganser

Location:  Anchorage, AK – Spenard Crossing (East Chester)

Relative Rarity:  Almost annual occurrence in Anchorage, Alaska…perhaps bi-annual.  Previous reports in the early summer and then again fall of 2014, the fall of 2013, the fall of 2011, the fall of 2008, the fall of 2004, and the fall of 1979.

Seems like the fall has it!  Spring or fall, it’s a regal bird!
