Observation Time: 4:50 p.m.

Observation Location: Gavins Pond

Common Name: Wood Duck

Comments: Wood ducks are often seen in Gavins Pond in the fall. They are quite shy, so getting close enough to get a good photo of these spectacular ducks is a challenge. Note that the female has drab plummage compared to the gaudy drake.
