Now that momma snowy owl goddess is gone…The male wood duck is my new love ♥. Momma snowy will always be #1, but he is most definately #2. These are thee most beautiful duck, simply because they don’t look or seem real. It looks like someone hand painted a wooden duck and placed it on the water. I am in love with his red eye, and the squeak he makes.
