Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola)

Location
Okanagan, BC, Canada
Scientific name
Bucephala albeola
Amazing photo of some very interesting... ducks? I'm not familiar with these, but I assume they are, in fact, ducks, and are not cartoon characters like they seem to be. Regardless, the two on the left are gorgeous, and the one on the right has its own charm.
 
A lovely, good capture of two males and a female. With the pandemic still raging, I miss these cold weather visitors to New York's Central Park. As I once read, these ducks were called "butterballs," because they were all fat and no meat.


Stay safe,
