Bird Pic Of The Week

Wood Duck

(Aix sponsa)

Where: Albuquerque, NM

Notes: To have the opportunity to be included in such a great adventure to New Mexico was a Blessing in itself. But to have such a close encounter with what is inarguably one of North America's most beautiful native water fowl, was truly exciting. Wood Ducks prefer wooded swamps, shallow lakes, ponds, marshes or creeks. They usually nest in tree cavities close to water. Wood Ducks have sharp claws on their webbed feet for perching in trees. They occasionally produce two broods in a single season in the south and are the only North American ducks that do so. After hatching, the ducklings jump down from the nest tree, often from great heights, and make their way to water to swim and find their own food. These perching duks feed mainly on berries, acorns, and seeds, but also eat insects. I like this photo because the mostly overcast skies that day, provided even lighting, with just enough brightness to illuminate the iridescence of this drake's plumage.
