Wood Duck 001
The wood ducks have returned to the North Shore lakes and ponds. I have a blind set up on one pond and really enjoy spending the early morning hours in the blind. Several species of wildlife are active at this time and I hear owls, drumming grouse, song birds and frogs. Lots of frogs. The wood ducks come flying in about 4:45 AM so you have to get in the blind early.
This week about a dozen male wood ducks were hanging around one female. It made for lots of commotion as the males were vying for the female’s attention.
