    Wood Duck "Spring Valley"
    Full Size Image = 1056 K
    Male Wood Duck- Aix sponsa
    Wood Duck-Aix sponsa, Order ANSERIFORMES - Family ANATIDAE - Subfamily Anatinae. Today was a wonderful birding day--temps in the low 80''s, clear skies, and excellent lighting. The male seemed to be guarding this nest box in Spring Valley. He was spectacular! (Photo: April 16, 2004, Canon 10D, EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM, 1.4x teleconverter EF ll lens, manual focus)

    "A colorful duck of wooded swamps and streamsides. About 47-54 cm long. Male brightly patterned, female dull gray brown. In this photo, the male is on the left. Year round resident. Nests in trees near the water. The ducklings may jump from heights of up to 89 m (290 ft) without injury from their nest to the ground." This duck was spotted on a beautiful, sunny mid-April day in the
    Shaker Trace Wetlands in the Miami Whitewater Forest area in SW Ohio
