Abstract

The first known record of Hooded Mergansers (Lophodytes cucullatus) nesting on the coastal plain of Maryland was in 1961, when Mr. Francis Uhler (pers. comm) found two clutches in Wood Duck nest boxes in impoundments at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, about five miles southeast of Laurel, Maryland. R.E. Stewart and C.S. Robbins (“Birds of Maryland and the District of Columbia,” N. Amer. Fauna no. 62, 1958; see p. 102) reported two records of broods for Maryland, one for the Piedmont and one for the mountains.
