We have the ducks!

Wood ducks that is.  But alas, not the splendidly plumed male duck.  This was a group of young females so I can now say I have sorta kinda photographed wood ducks – finally!  I’ve been told by a couple of birding friends where to find a male or two.


They were some slick characters too.  Even though I was shooting with a long lens they knew just where to swim around and in the reeds that made it difficult to get a good close shot.  The hunt – now fortified by having seen some of them – continues!

    When migrating… we get a few wood ducks here at the lake.
    One time I had a whole family of wood ducks in the back yard! They left as fast as they came.
    Glad you got to see some!

    This is so interesting. Hope the hunt goes well and gets you the coveted trophy 🏆 the plumed male 🦆
