Joan Chasan photographed this presumed hybrid wood duck and hooded merganser at Heard Pond in Wayland. Joan had previously shared images and identification notes on the birds, and now shares this about these images: "I have been asked how the hybrid merganser/wood duck would make a living (eat). One is a diving duck, one is a dabbling duck. Well I caught this sequence at Heard Pond. Mostly I have seen them just dabbling along the edges but caught this one in a mini or partial dive."
