Four hooded mergansers (2 pairs) were fishing on the open water of 
Quinnipiac River above the dam at Quinnipiac Street, Wallingford about 
noon on 1/22.  Dam and fishway are located at Exit 64 of Wilbur Cross 
Pkwy. These are spectacularly beautiful birds and raised their crests 
frequently while they fished and chased around. One female caught a 
small fish and the other 3 chased after her, but she ate it quickly!
