After some modest success with a Bufflehead a couple of days ago, I decided to make another try of it. I don’t like using blinds, but skittish ducks are one of the exceptions that I make. Today I was out in the blind before sunup waiting for the ducks. Blinds have two major problems: your visibility is greatly reduced and moving is difficult or impossible. The ducks came to the pond I was waiting at but they spent most of their time on the far side of the pond. There was one male who seemed to have a harem of nearly 10 females following him around. These are three of the females who separated from the rest of the group for a bit.
