You've got some pretty interesting birds there.

Default Always be ready to learn something

I was sitting at the desk this morning and I saw two large birds land in the tree across the street. I couldn't tell what they were but they looked like ducks. I took a few pics and then looked at them for identification and they were Wood Ducks! I did not know that any ducks could perch but my NatGeo field guide lists them and Muscovies as perching ducks. I'm sure this is no surprise to many or even most here, but it was to me. I like starting the day by learning something new!

The female is in the crook of the tree to the left and slightly above the male (as seen in the photo).

I too, have seen Wood Ducks perching in trees, but there's just something incongruous about ducks in trees!

Probably the last of the white-throated sparrows, until next winter. Too bad they don't sing while they're here.

omg! I love to see Wood Ducks in a tree outside my window! Come to think about it, I love to have a tree outside my window. Lots of tree around, but not near my window. Florida - yes, Buffalo - no. But! We have had turkeys on the roofs!

Great collection of birds, Maggy! Thanks for sharing!

So many beautiful pictures of birds I rarely have the opportunity to see.

Thank you for sharing your pictures.

Like these pics very much! I have to disagree with you about the singing. For the past two weeks, my bf and I have heard them singing in the trees here in Ventnor, NJ. What a beautiful song! I even played their song on my laptop and was able to call them in!

A couple of skimmers and an immature bald eagle thinking he can lift a tree...
