In my former neighborhood, ducks of all kinds were common, but Wood Ducks were scarce. Now that I'm in a new location in Northern California, I'm thrilled that these birds are more commonly seen. I showed a local pair in my last blog post, but this morning, I really hit the jackpot in a nearby pond. Enjoy!
|Everybody in the water!|
|How many colors do you see?|
|As usual, the female is drab in comparison. The white eye liner helps a little!|
|The Mr. and the Mrs. out together.|
|Think he knows how good he looks?|
|A closer look at the sweet and modest female.|
|Time to go ashore for a sun snooze.|
I hope your days are filled with more wonders of nature and I wish you Wood Ducks in your future. Good birding!
