Male Wood Duck

Posted by .

The Male Wood Duck is a brilliant bird with his green crested head and bright red eyes. These beautiful ducks like nesting boxes because they don’t make their own cavities for nesting. I would sure like to have a pair nest in my yard, but I suppose I would also need to build a pond for them, which is not possible because I have bears roaming through my backyard most all year. I don’t think that would work out very well for the little ducklings since they jump out of the nest just a day after hatching and can’t fly!
