Wood Ducks illustrates a male and female wood duck. The male is standing on a log while the female swims by. The male duck is identified by his multicolored iridescent plumage, red eyes, and white flare along his neck, while the female duck is less colorful with a white eye-ring and throat.
The wood ducks are native to the ponds, swamps, and creeks of North America often migrating south for the winter. They create nests in trees close to water, where they breed and dabble to search for berries, seeds, and acorns.
