No story here—just a photo of a handsome pair of Wood Ducks at Lake Martin. In contrast to the Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks displayed in my previous post, there is no problem distinguishing between male and female of this species.
I guess I felt the need to post this photo in honor of the many Wood Ducks that have nested over the years in the box above our small pond at home. I would like to think that at least some of our chicks made their way to beautiful Lake Martin.
The location from which this photo was taken is shown on the map below. Zoom in for more detail.
