Wood ducks

I have been having a difficult time in the last few weeks to set aside the time to either edit photos or post anything.  I’ve finally gone through photos from the last two weeks, and as usual, it’s all about birds.  These wood ducks were a first for me – I’m sure I have seen them before, but I had never photographed them or identified them.  When I was trying to determine what variety of duck these were, I learned that the wood duck was hunted to near extinction in the 19th century, but a hunting ban helped to rebuild their numbers.
