Wood ducks in the yard!

I've been following the ducks down on the pond. We have three nesting duck boxes I hope will be filled. We have had some rain. There was a little river running down from the driveway. Somebody yelled at me to come look out the kitchen window!

Just as I posted about them at the pond, they turned up in the yard!

Usually, they are down on the pond!

I wonder if wood ducks prefer country settings. I can only recall ever seeing one in the city.

Wonderful! I have seen wood ducks in the city a couple of times but to have them wandering around the yard is incredible!
