I could take pictures of the wood duck all day. I love the stunning colors!

Per all about birds - Wood Ducks have a unique shape among ducks—a boxy, crested head, a thin neck, and a long, broad tail.

In good light, males have a glossy green head cut with white stripes, a chestnut breast and buffy sides.
