Bufflehead Duck Photos
Bufflehead ducks are numerous in
western waterways. The day we took this picture on San Juan Island, there
were two separate flocks that had moved south for the winter. There were
probably 50-60 birds that were skipping from one part of this inlet to the
other. They seemed to fly as groups which meant that it was easy getting them
lined up when they moved. We got this particular bufflehead duck photo as the
bird was skimming in
for a water landing - note the splash as its feet touchdown on the water.
Note that the head of a sea otter
is barely visible in the upper right hand corner of this photo.
