Freezing my bum off for an hour in one spot today paid off. 🙂
Interesting Fact: Buffleheads are highly active and will undertake dives almost continuously. One duck will serve as a sentry, watching for predators as the others in the group dive in search of food. ( http://www.withmephotographyblog.com/10-interesting-facts-about-the-bufflehead )

Where in Jersey did you find this duck/What park?
I’ll be moving to NJ soon – Not looking forward to it but living expenses are slightly less than NY.
You can find them in multiple spots all over jersey this one I got in Bayonne park. Good luck with your move. 🙂
