A Young Wood Duck

Tuesday, October 26, 2021,

This is a juvenile male Wood Duck that I found at Frank Melville Park in Setauket five days ago. He’s fairly handsome now but come next year, he’ll be absolutely amazing. Like something out of a Peter Max painting. Many male ducks dress a little fancier than their female counterparts, but Wood Ducks take it to an extreme. A wonderful, magnificent extreme. JK

  1. He’s cute! He has a sweet look in his eye. 🙂
    And in addition to the wood duck, the color of the log he’s on as it meets the water is beautiful — nice job!
