This juvenile Hooded Merganser was found alone in a yard in Snohomish. It was likely separated from its family, or was left behind for some reason. It was emaciated and in need of help. We are hopeful that it got to us in time to be rehabilitated and can eventually be released. Status - died. Sadly, on 7/29/16, it was found deceased. Necropsy revealed that the Merganser was suffering from aspergillosis. So, due the emaciation, dehydration, and infection - this bird was not able to recover.
