First bufflehead I've seen at Yesler! OR at all! AH!
Closest would be goldeneye but their beak would have yellow line . Suppose these are females. What are they?
Of all years I have visited this place, entire summers that is, I've never seen one. It was resting on a hot day
Goldeneye and Whistler are common names for a species of small tree-hole nesting northern hemisphere seaducks belonging to the genus Bucephala. The plumage is black and white. Goldeneyes eat fish, crustaceans and other marine life. The "Whistler" name comes from the noise their beating wings make in flight.
