Repeat Rock Harbor Visit with the Hybrid Buffle x Common Goldeneye – Day 52

Well there I was at Rock Harbor, drooling over the most amazing Common Loon that was swimming up the channel…

When UP! popped the hybrid Bufflehead x Common Goldeneye duck that I’d seen at that very spot back in December!


How glorious it was to see him again, and myohmy, he sure was looking well!


Swimming along with all of his Bufflehead pals…


And looking so handsome against all of the rippling reflections there in the water.


And if I don’t get a chance to visit with this amazing “new life bird” again this year before he leaves us…


I will count myself blessed to have gotten the chance to see him… just once more.
