I found fourteen Hooded Mergansers swimming in the lake at Ben Brenman Park (Cameron Station area off Duke Street in Alexandria) around 4:15 p.m. today. I didn't see any when I drove through on Saturday afternoon., so they are fairly recently arrived. Cliff Otto Alexandria --- avast! Antivirus: Outbound message clean.
