STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WOOD DUCKS

26 Comments

I took these handsome fellows back in May when they were in full breeding plumage. They are the most colourful of ducks and migrate to our region each spring. If we’re lucky wood ducks remain until the first frost. As the season progresses they become less wary of people and will swim close to shore or walk along the pathways for some nice close-ups.

  1. I agree – these male Wood Ducks are just beautiful! We had a family here earlier this summer, but I only saw them once and only in the evening and from a distance. Alas no photos

  3. Beautiful capture, Belinda! The soft ripples and reflections nicely offset of the crisp image of the ducks.

  4. Aren’t they flashy!! Wish we had more of them here. They are only a very occasional bird in this part of the country (Vancouver Island). Nice photos of them. Their plumage is so bright and smooth, a good contrast to the dull but patterned water.

  6. Jaw-dropping gorgeous, Belinda! They are such a lovely duck. I am still trying to capture one of these, and they are abundant in our area in the Spring! I guess we know what next Spring’s challenge should be for me! 🙂

  9. Love these guys. They are surely among the least realistic-looking birds ever – carved from wood, painted by someone on whizz… RH
