A group of fellow photographers headed out to High Park in search of Wood Ducks.
We got there at the crack of dawn but had to wait a bit before they showed up at the pond.
From the US Fish and Wildlife Services website:
"Early colonists called the wood duck the "summer duck.” They have also been known as the Carolina duck, due to where it was first described, the swamp duck, because of its preferred habitat, and the acorn duck after one of its favorite foods.
Wood ducks, so named because they nest in tree cavities, are found in wooded swamps and woodlands near ponds, streams, and rivers. Their range expands the United States, and at one time the wood duck was so prevalent it was considered as a possible national symbol."
