Wood Ducks at Prairie Wolf

Last week while visiting my parents, Arthur and I stopped at Prairie Wolf Slough. There we had our best looks ever at a pair of Wood Ducks. They spent time preening and then settling down for a nap. Usually when we spot Wood Ducks, they are either far off or extremely wary of us and fly away. It was a real treat to observe this beautiful pair. There are several Wood Duck boxes at the slough; I hope we will get to see these birds again, maybe once with ducklings!

    Wonderful shots of my nemesis duck Amy! Someday I will get some good photos of Wood Ducks. Like you said, for me they are always very weary and take flight at any hint of human disturbance.
