Bucephala albeola


Adult males are white and black with a large head and a white patch that wraps around the back of the head. Females and first-year males are mostly gray or brown with a white cheek patch. Buffleheads are small, chunky birds.


These ducks are cavity nesters so are found in the edges of forests near water features. In winter, they are often found in large, freshwater lakes near the coast.
