The Wood Duck
Welcome to my little page where you can learn about the bird from the art you bought!
This bird can be found all over the United States, but is most common on the east side of the country and migrate south to Mexico over the winter. According to allaboutbirds.org - the wood duck is one of the most stunning waterfowls, with the males being a chestnut green and having ornate patterns on almost every feather. In contrast, the females are brown with delicate patterns around the eyes.
These birds live in wooded swamps, where they nest in trees or nest boxes placed around lake margins. They're also one of the few ducks that have strong claws that can grip bark and perch on branches.
