#4 Hooded Merganser
These small ducks with yellow eyes light up winter birding on freshwater ponds and protected saltwater bays. The males fan their distinctive black-and-white crests while courting the cinnamon-brown females. In the summer they nest in tree cavities, and their ducklings depart the nest by jumping all the way down to the ground within 24 hours of hatching.
This patch is inspired by Alabama Audubon’s conservation work in one of America’s most biodiverse states. Bird Collective donates a portion of its profits to Alabama Audubon and other bird conservation groups.
