Did you know that wood ducks have strong claws allowing them to grip bark and perch on branches? Wood ducks typically nest in tree cavities in wooded swamps but will also readily use nest boxes placed near water. Although they usually nest near or over water, they will sometimes nest a mile or more from the nearest water body. Wood Ducks are the only species of duck in North America that regularly produces two broods per year, with the average clutch size being 6-16 eggs. A day after hatching, the ducklings jump from the nest, able to survive falls of more than 50 feet without injury.
