wood duck

Aix sponsa

Description:

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

Habitat:

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.

Notes:

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.
