 View this portrait's work in progress here!

 The hooded merganser (Lophodytes cucullatus) is a shy bird and is one of the most secretive of all the North American ducks. The male is quite easily recognizable with his white hood and distinctive plumage.  The female's is drabber and mostly rusty brown.

 Little is known about the breeding habits of this bird but like the wood duck, the hooded merganser nests in tree cavities and will use nest boxes when availble.
