Wood Ducks and Bear Bait

The bears are going to be happy this fall!  We’ve got lots of apple blossoms.

The wood ducks made an appearance this afternoon.  It looks like the male on the left is a young one just coming into his breeding colors.  Maybe still living with Mom and Dad until he gets through this awkward stage?

The hen stayed closer to the larger male so I’m guessing they are a couple.

Maybe we need to make a nest box.
