From a distance, we saw this lone bufflehead in the reservoir.

  2. I saw my first one this year. They are sharp looking ducks. So sad he is alone however. Maybe he is just the scout.

  4. Love those Buffleheads (-:

    When I moved to Scudder Pond and was learning the names of ducks, I was delighted to be able to say that I had seen a Bufflehead. Like a buffalo?
    Or what?

  5. I've been seeing those on nearby Green Lake. They're very exotic-looking in these parts.

  6. The photo is wonderful with its horizontal symmetry scuttled by the bufflehead.
