What About Wood Ducks?
They are quite handsome! I have no good photos of the female so these are males. One thing to look for on the female is the large whitish ring around the eye...and a blue band of color on the wing...The wood duck lives and nests here in SC so I have had a few opps to see them...but not always getting a good photo--these are my favs of the ones I do have-the first is a scan of an old photo--the rest are more recent.
These ducks are cavity nesters and if you have a wetland or pond of your own Wood Duck Nest Boxes would be a great way to attract them-
