 I captured this image while on a bike ride last weekend.  I think it is my first Wood Duck capture!  The light wasn't that great this day and was overhead and harsh so created a shadow on it's face but I am pretty sure, by comparing the markings, that the one on the right is a Wood Duck.  Not sure what the one on the left is but it doesn't seem to match what a female looks like. 


  1. Definitely a male wood duck. The other might be a female bufflehead. Definitely not a female woodie

    1. Very cool, thanks for the ID Jim. Wish it had been a better photo.
