Woonas Wildlife

Hooded MerganserMy girlfriend spotted this Hooded Merganser while we were walking in Riverside Park. I’m always kind of surprised when I see something like this in Providence. Like most people the only wildlife I expect to see in the city are rats, pigeons, and seagulls, but as more areas of the city become open green spaces I’m hoping that more woodland creatures will start calling Providence home. Some other local wild residents that can be seen around town include: Mallards, Canadian Geese, Double-Breasted Cormorants, and Red-Shouldered Hawks (especially cool when seen hunting pigeons in Olneyville parking lots).
