Diving Buffs

Recently I saw some Bufflehead Ducks diving for breakfast very near the shore. The water was particularly clear that day and the male duck's bright orange legs were clearly visible working to keep him submerged. I always enjoy watching these little ducks dive - they are so buoyant that they have to jump up a little before they dive and work very hard to stay under the water. As soon as they stop paddling they pop up like corks. The video below will give you some idea of their diving prowess.
