About the Bird Art:
The image is printed on Epson Premium Matte Paper with UltraChrome Ink; the color should last quite a long time. The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed on the back. Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print. Color may vary (based on your monitor settings).

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a bufflehead called, “We’ll All Float On”
What a silly, silly name for a duck! I love how the dark patches on these little ducks are so vibrant. Fun fact about buffleheads: they next almost exclusively in old woodpecker holes!
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for September 2019.
About the Bufflehead
A diminutive diver, one of our smallest ducks, often very energetic in its feeding. Related to the goldeneyes and, like them, nests in cavities; but unlike other hole-nesting ducks, the Bufflehead is small enough to use unmodified old nest holes of Northern Flickers, giving it a ready source of good nest sites. Less sociable than most ducks, seen in pairs or small groups, almost never in large flocks. Takes wing easily from the water, flies with rapid wingbeats. The name “Bufflehead” is derived from “buffalo-head,” for the male’s odd puffy head shape.
