The contrast between the color and markings on the wood duck and the blue water really serves to make the water bird visually stand out in the image. I find them a hard bird to photograph in comparison to say a Canadian goose or other ducks... very skittish is what comes to mind.

Another great shot Sandi. We have plenty Wood ducks here in Mtl. Did

No, I didn't know that the wood ducks roost on tree branches. It must be comical looking to see that. These ducks are not common here but I know they are common in Ontario and Quebec. I am hoping to get another shot of this bird standing on a rock or something.;-)

Likely the most beautiful of all ducks. If I was clicking at your spot I would take this

I found this image from 2007 of 4 wood ducks (male, female, male, female) perched on a diagonal leaning tree trunk in Assiniboine Park here in Winnipeg. They look quite comfortable... odd but comfortable.

That's pretty amazing, Jan, that they can do that.;-)
