Spring brings lots of ducks through our area on their way to their breeding grounds in the northern United States and Canada. Fresh breeding plumage means they look their very best at this time of the year. Here is a pair of Wood Ducks I found at Como Lake in St. Paul, MN. I had a photo of Wood Ducks just two weeks ago but you couldn’t see the female very well in that photo. While she isn’t as flashy as the male, you can see the subtle iridescence of her wing feathers.
