As far as looks go, there is none more stunning than the wood duck. A lovely mixture of colors and patterns decorate the plumage of this species of waterfowl. Although their looks are flamboyant, their nature is not. Wood ducks are shy, elusive creatures that often frequent wooded areas. Unlike most other waterfowl, they will perch and nest in trees.
