Bufflehead duck

The bufflehead is one of the smallest diving ducks measuring in at around 13 inches and weighing only about a pound. This duck is an excellent swimmer and a diver.

Bufflehead Ducks breed in Alaska and Canada around small lakes and ponds. During migration and in the winter, they are found along the coast in sheltered bays, estuaries and inlets.

While ducks prefer ponds, if you find many birds near your home then you can install a window bird feeder to help them out!
