I was so very pleased to find a small flock of Wood Ducks last Tuesday ( August 22) in a small pond nearby. There were 4 or 5 or perhaps more. I believe they were all males. I was able to crop and edit one individual from the group. this was an exciting find as I have not seen any Wood Ducks in this setting all summer, which was unusual.
Shown above is the small flock I saw on Tuesday
Above is one of the male Wood Ducks seen in the small flock.
Then hoping to find the group again I returned to the same location on Friday and oh, so lucky I saw a small group in the water again, but before I could take their picture in the water they took off and following are a few pictures I was able to capture of them in flight!
Their take off was in a bit of a jumble,
however they sorted themselves out in flight as they flew away
These pictures verify my original estimate that is was a small flock of four or five.
And now that I have downloaded and posted these photos I now have a desire to return to the location and see if I can find them again today.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
