Mid-sized migratory duck able to perch on trees. Males have colorful feathers and the species used to be hunted for its feathers leading almost to extinction in early 20th Century.
Wood Duck is a migratory bird spending winter in southern areas in the USA. While staying around Montreal, the species can be observed on ponds in forest areas. My favorite spot to watch this bird is Parc de Prairies during Spring.
On every park visit, we maintain a log of species spotted and identified. If you maintain a similar list, please consider sharing it with Muuuh Wildlife Photography: Share Logs.
