Caption: Had so much fun with this wood duck photo op along the Riverwalk. I surely hope this little pair sticks around and has wood duck babies this spring.

I think it depends on the lighting plus what time of the year you see them. I was reading when nonbreeding in late summer, the males lose their bold stripes and pale sides but retain their bright eye and bill. I found this on the Cornell site for identifying birds at
http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Wood_Duck/id

Also you might enjoy the PBS nature show that aired this week called PBS Nature: An Original Duckumentary and you can watch it online.

Great PBS nature video and it features a wood duck family - like the wood duck I got a photo of Saturday.

Beautiful multicolored duck Eileen! The ones we call wood ducks up here are (I believe) a different species, and nowhere as colorful!
