Hen Bufflehead Duck

 

Seldom seen ducks such as Pintails, Blue Winged Teal, and a lone Bufflehead (my favorite duck), were here in The Villages, FL, on December 26, 2019 in the Northern areas of the community (Souliere Villas ponds and Lopez Legacy Golf Driving Range pond).  Other ducks such as Whistlers were seen at Lake Mira-mar and at the little Glenview Country Club ponds on Buena Vista at El Camino.
