In search of Wood Ducks

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I have been searching for the Illusive Wood Duck to photograph for several years! Despite their nickname as “Carolina” Duck, they seem to be scarce here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maybe I just don’t know where to look? I was recently in Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge and suddenly here was Mrs Wood Duck! No sign of her well dressed male partner but she is just fine!Female Wood Duck standing on bank of pond with beak open (Sandra Calderbank, sandra calderbank).
