INTERESTING FACTS

Wood Duck young leave the nest soon after hatching. They jump from the nesting cavity, often high up in a tree, to the ground or water. The Wood Duck is a distinctively North American species, as fossil remains have been found only in widely scattered locations in the eastern part of the continent. The Wood Duck was hunted nearly to extinction during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Management procedures have been successful and there are now well over a million Wood Ducks in North America. A group of ducks has many collective nouns, including "a brace of ducks", "flush of ducks", "paddling of ducks", "raft of ducks", and a "team of ducks."
