    Any one else see the November Outdoor Life Article on Cold Bay? Page 51 shows a dead bird listed as a "hen harlequin", but sure looks like a hen buffie to me.
    What say you?

    Hen Harlies and buffies look very similar. Can you post a picture?

    I looked at it last night and it seemed to have way too much blue in it to be a buffie

    That's 100% a hen buffie. Wrong color and only 1 white marking on the head. They look nothing like a hen harli. There is really no way to confuse the 2. Google some images to see what I'm talking about.
