[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Wood Duck or Carolina Duck, Aix sponsa is a medium-sized perching duck. An typical adult is about 19 inches in length with an average wingspan of 29 inches.

Their breeding habitat is wooded swamps, shallow lakes, marshes or ponds in eastern North America, the west coast of the United States and western Mexico. They usually nest in cavities in trees close to water, although they will take advantage of nesting boxes in wetland locations if available. Their personality is however somewhat shy and skittish.
