Description

Breeding pair of Wood Ducks (Aix sponsa) rest on a log raft in Narbeck Wetland Sanctuary, Everett, WA. Beautiful and unique, this duck inhabits woodland ponds and river swamps. It has no close relatives, except for the Mandarin Duck of eastern Asia. With its striking green crested head, white bridle, orange-reddish bill and eye, the drake Wood Duck is a spectacular bird. It has a white flecked chestnut breast, yellow flanks and a black back.
