Great shot Bernie. Perfect lighting really shows on this couple. Nice that spring has arrived and the birds are on their way back.

Thank you Debra. Yes, spring is always a welcome season. This pair stayed a week in the location where I found them but have since moved on . . .

Beautiful shot of this mating pair. Yay have caught the plumage of the male perfectly and in a great setting

Thank you Clifford. Unfortunately, they have moved on and we won't see the arrival of the 2022 crop of new Woodies.

Description
We have been blessed - last week the local duck pond welcomed a pair of returning Woodies - to add much colour and interest to the normal population of Blacks and Mallards. When one has not seen Wood Ducks for a while, their vivid plumage strikes fresh feelings of wonder and appreciation. This was taken last week on Thursday - today they have gone to find a hidden nesting site.
