Males perform a beautiful courtship display and, once mated, swim energetically around the female in further ritual displays. Hooded Mergansers breed on wooded ponds, lakes, and rivers; winters in coastal marshes and inlets. The female lays 8-12 white eggs in a down-lined cup in a natural tree cavity or sometimes in a fallen hollow log.
