"HOUSE HUNTING"

Wood Ducks (Male & Female) - 9 Photos

 

House hunting in Calgary, Alberta is currently experiencing an intense market but finding just the right nesting habitat for the Wood Ducks could be somewhat challenging as well, as they search for the best location with close proximity to water but a secure nest in a suitable tree cavity.

 

The male Wood Duck stood by as his partner checked out various possible sites, both going from tree to tree but never landing that far apart. And there was a low vocalization from the female, as she called to her mate. 

 

Both eventually flew from the area and across to another section of woods, to resume their house hunting.

 

Photo #4 was taken at one of the first potential sites, which appeared not to satisfy the female's criteria.

They are such pretty ducks, beautifully photographed!
I hope they found a good house, and not too expensive :)
