Buffleheads can take flight from water without having to run along the surface as other diving ducks do.
The population of male Bufflehead outnumbers the females and many of the males will not be paired after their migration to the breeding areas.
Bufflehead ducks migrate during the night using the darkness as cover. They will migrate during the day when the weather is severe.
