Wood Duck

Male & Female Wood Ducks
Photo by Todd Ratermann
The male (L) is beautifully colored during the mating season, while the female (R) remains a camouflaged brown. These beautiful ducks lay up to 15 eggs in the cavities of trees or in nesting boxes, sometimes 60 feet or more from the ground. They prefer wooded ponds, lakes or rivers, and can be found throughout most of the eastern United States.
Wood Duck Nest BoxOne way to help attract wood ducks to your property is to place a couple of nest boxes in the area of ponds or other water sources.
