Wood Ducks showing off in Grenadier Pond, High Park Toronto.
I have been told that these beautiful males will lose their colour in summer and become rather drab.
Also, they may not be able to fly during that period, due to the loss of flight feathers. Thanks for sending this to us, Marinus, and I know I published it here five years ago, but your picture is lovely so I will also post this on our Facebook page so that our Facebook followers can also enjoy your wonderful picture.
