Wood Ducks

It's interesting to see the various stages of moult these birds go through. The bird in the top photograph is still lacking the white and black feather edges on it's sides that are evident in the bird in the third photo. I'm still seeing some juvenile males that lack most of the colouring of the adults but the throat patch is still apparent. September 25, East Jordan.
