Wood Duck

Such beautiful unique colors on the male Wood Duck! The females are pretty plain, with gray-brown coloring…  They like to build their nests in large tree cavities near water, the opening can be as high up as 65 feet! These beauties were threatened with extinction in the early 20th century due to so many trees being cut down and being hunted! Currently the Wood Duck is recovering since they are now legally protected and thousands of nesting boxes have been put up, which they happily seem to use!
