Bufflehead Kerfluffle

 Bufflehead males last Wednesday

Most of the year buffleheads seem pretty laid back...but not now. It's mating season!

Get outta here!

I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.

I have to admit: I had to look up kerfluffle for the meaning. Not a word in my vocabulary, but I'm sure it will be now. Very aptly captioned!

They are chasing one another, aren't they? Mostly it's robins and grackles and red-winged around here! Lovely shot!
