Sometimes I Get Lucky - BuffleHead Duck


I went to the Veteran's Park Fishing Pond in Boulder City, Nevada, hoping to get a photo of an osprey catching a trout. While waiting for the osprey, I saw this little Bufflehead swimming toward me. Usually all you can see of these little guys is black and white. Because of the angle he was swimming and the angle of the morning sun, he was very colorful. The presence of fishermen at the far end of the pond pushed him close enough that I was able to get several nice photos.

  1. When I saw the ring necked duck a couple of days ago here I immediatly thought bufflehead but no buffle. Their head shape is so similiar they must be somewhat related.
