During migration times, we often see buffleheads on our lake. Often they are here in the spring even before all of the ice is gone from our lake. They are quite shy when they are on our lake and it’s very difficult to get close to them.
Buffleheads are North Americas’s smallest ducks. They are sea ducks and are usually seen diving for their food. The males are black and white, with a large white patch on their glossy green and purple heads. The females are much more subdued with gray-brown feathers.
They are mostly monogamous, and often keep the same mate for several years. Apparently one has lived to at least 18 years.
I chose this verse because it is good to remember that if we know the Lord, our strength comes from Him. We do not need to be timid like the buffleheads.
