Wood Duck is common and widespread in wooded swamps in the East but more local in the West. It nests in tree cavities and in artificial duck boxes, often over water.

In winter it is found on ponds and swamps throughout the Southeast, mostly near he coast in the West. This species eats seeds and nuts, especially acorns an hickory nuts.

VOICE Male: when flushed a thin, upwardly inflected jweeeeep. Female: a loud, cresendo oooWEEK! Also gives quacking and piping whistles

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
