This was my first attempt at creating a Hooded Merganser block. I was working from several pictures and, of course, the exact details are different on each one. What varies most is the shape of the head and the white "fan" depending on whether the "hood" is up or not.
The Log Cabin block on the left comes from my 2 June 2010 post. I've changed the colors slightly to create the one on the right. I want to try this new and livelier version in various settings and see what turns up.
