wood duck

Aix sponsa


This dark colored duck has just a small area of white around its eye.


This duck was seen flying up from the trees around the west fork of the Red River in Todd County, Kentucky. It landed in a recently harvested wheat field and lingered there a while before flying back toward the creek.


This duck seems to be alone. No others of its kind are seen nearby.

That white, teardrop shape around the eye is distinctive for a female Wood Duck.
