Wood Ducks???? by joansmor

Wood Ducks????

I have been wanting forever to get a picture of a Wood Duck. This morning I took my camera to the pond to capture my annual picture of the Hooded Merganser but the light was horrible as the sun was on the horizon blinding me most of the time. I found some ducks across the pond in a shaded area. I finally looked at them this afternoon. Not sure but think it they are Wood Ducks. Anyone want to venture an opinion. If it is I am thrilled. Needless to say I will be going back. But they could just be passing through.
@vignouise look what I found.

Interesting ducks. Isn't it funny the way names are used in different places - these are spectacular looking ducks - our wood ducks are very dull and boring.

Yes, wood ducks. I used to tell my students you could identify wood ducks easily because it looks like they are wearing a baseball cap backwards - like many of my students did! The one on the far right of your image shows it most clearly but if you google wood ducks you could find a close-up image. Nice find, Joan!
