Friends,

I’m pleased to invite you to a special celebration of All Buffleheads Day on October 14th ( Leap Year). Special because it will mark :

A) the twentieth anniversary of monitoring the return of the ‘Spirit Duck’ to the Salish Sea,

B) the fiftieth anniversary of my first meeting with the Bufflehead, the ‘Dewar Duck’,

C) the final solution (proximate cause) of the mystery behind the Great Bufflehead Crash.
