STOPS ALONG THE WAY

SHALLOW END

Woodduck & chick

Wood Duck chicks and their parents seem to prefer this part of the lake. A few posts back I featured an adult female on the same log keeping an eye on her young. The wood duck is the only duck in North America that produces two broods a year. As we’ve had many adult pairs at the lake this summer we’re seeing a lot of chicks, more than any other species.
