Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye or both - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 

I am really impressed with these goldeneyes.  I went out in the row boat today to check the wood duck boxes and these little guys followed me all the way.  Not even slightly spooked. 

 

I don't know why I was reluctant to get some divers in the past, they are very entertaining.  Red heads may have to go on the want list.  They sound great for a mixed collection and do have a cool look, not to mention they are very reasonably priced.  Thanks for the suggestion.

i was reading you post and interesting to say the least. I raise both the Common and Barrow's Goldeneye and the barrows by far are my favorite birds.. my male is such a camera hog!

i also have the buffleheads but mine are aonly aggressice towards each other and that is beacuse I lost o ne of my hens last year and the two boys fight over her.

 

On anotehr note though. I think I would have a stroke if I let thos price birds on my pond.. I am sure they would just fly away.

 

Good luck... Now I am thinking about putting divers on my pond :)
