It was a treat this winter to see a female redhead wintering in a very small and local pond in Cloverdale. It is most likely the same bird that was here last winter as well using the same pond. These birds are not usually found here summer or winter, but are seen on the way through to the interior of British Columbia or coming back south during migration. Redheads are one of those special birds with just one name like Cher or Madonna that need no other description. The females are like the rest of the waterfowl and are muted to through off predators while on the nest.
