Bufflehead Male  Walking Carving Pattern

The Bufflehead Male  Walking Carving Pattern is an easy carving pattern for the beginner or seasoned carver.  A Bufflehead duck is a small sea duck with a odd shaped head. The male puffs out the feathers on the head  increasing the apparent size of the head. The Bufflehead Drake ranges from 13‚Äì16" long and weighs up to 1.5 lbs. Females average  14" long and weigh up to 13 oz. Adult males are black and white, with iridescent green and purple heads and a large white patch behind the eye. Females are grey-toned with a smaller white patch behind the eye and a light underside.

Bufflehead Male  Walking Carving Pattern

The Bufflehead pattern has top, front  and side views with an exploded view of the body,  head and bill.  This Stiller pattern is in black and white and you can choose full or 1/2 size  patterns.   You'll need reference material for painting, wood or cork to carve the duck from, and you can carve or purchase the  eyes.  We suggest making the cutout for the Bufflehead Walking Carving Pattern in two pieces, the body, and head. Create your very own Bufflehead with this Stiller pattern.
