Bufflehead Pond

This manmade habitat is named for the bufflehead duck, one of several migratory waterfowl species that visit Colleton River Club during the Winter. Here, the bufflehead may dive underwater and capture a small fish, crab, or insect. Spring and Summer, you may see wading birds here, hunting food to carry back to their chicks in the nesting rookery. An osprey may circle overhead, then plunge feet-first into the lake to snare a fish. The anhinga, long-necked and sharp billed, may be waiting on an overhanging limb to spear finny quarry.
