Wood Duck!

CF2C7474-001Wood Ducks are being seen in many lakes and ponds in Essex County.  The beautiful male Wood Ducks are considered by many to be the most striking and colorful of all North American ducks.  Their brightly colored plumage and stunning red eyes make for a memorable sight!  Unlike most other ducks, the Wood ducks are known for raising two broods per season!  This Wood Duck was recently seen at the Ward Reservation in Andover.
