A Drake Bufflehead flew by and I was happy to capture one sharp image out of my series. For tiny bird, they fly extremely fast. We identified and photographed at the harbor and across on the other side near the Back Eddy and identified many species including Canada geese, common eiders, Bullhead, red-breasted merganser, hooded merganser, American Widgeon, scaup, common goldeneye and a horned Grebe.
