Black And White Buffleheads At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod.


I love to see the Buffleheads swimming about in the winter here on Cape Cod. They are so distinct with their black and white coloring. I’ve seen many of them at Boat Meadow Creek and at Rock Harbor. They are pretty skittish if they see you or hear you, so it is easier to take a photograph at Rock Harbor where they are further away and there’s some noise about.

This male was flapping his wings as the 2 females swam nearby. There is such a difference between the males and females.

Have you ever seen a Bufflehead? Cool-looking, don’t you think?

  1. I’d never heard of this kind of duck, so I Googled:

    “Did you know: The name Bufflehead is a combination of buffalo and head, referring to the oddly bulbous head shape of the species.”
