Missouri's summer duck

Wood ducks seem to like their woods near water. They frequent wetland forests and the margins of streams and ponds, where you can often spot them searching for aquatic insects. Wood ducks have been reported in every county in Missouri. Wood duck males are gorgeously colored in spring and early summer but molt into a somewhat less gaudy “eclipse” plumage in June or July. — Jim Rathert
