Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola): Common migrant and winter resident. Rare in the northern part of the region, and absent in the southern part in the summer. Found on nearshore salt water habitats, and also regularly seen on lakes, ponds, and streams.

Reported to be a Rare nester in the vicinity of Yakutat, elsewhere breeding is not known to occur.

  • Check U for Summer in SGY
  • Breeding for Yakutat, update regional to Y?
  • Migration timing? Apparently pretty consistent in Sitka over the years, also elsewhere?
