20150722 Wood Duck

We stopped to watch a Wood Duck on the Forest Access Road late Wednesday afternoon.

Here she is:

P1650236-1-3

P1650254-1

P1650239-1

I looked for ducklings but saw none.  Perhaps the loss of her leg indicates that she escaped from a snapper but not her brood.  I will keep an eye on that pond for ducklings.   She could be one of this year’s brood but it seems early to see her so mature.
