Buffleheads are migratory, and soon they'll leave our portion of the coast and head north and west to
northern forests. They nest in tree cavities near lakes. The male above I caught at the mill
logpond on Friday - he was accompanied by his mate, but she wouldn't pose. The
photo of the female, below, dates from last spring.
They belong to the same family as the Goldeneyes, and the males have that same lovely
iridescence in the feathers of the head.
