Wood Ducks 002
We have had about two dozen wood ducks frequent our wildlife pond along the North Shore this spring. Every morning for about two weeks they landed on the pond to feed and court the females. The females were outnumbered every morning. One morning twenty-four males were fighting over one lone female. It seemed that she had already picked her mate so most of the fighting was her mate trying to fend off the other males as you can see above.
