Wood Duck

The wood duck was nearly hunted to extinction in the late 1800's and early 1900'x for its feathers and meat. Once the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 protected the species with legal harvest limits the wood duck made a remarkable comeback. The use of man-made boxes and the expansion of wetlands also contributed to the recovery of the wood duck in North America.

Considered by many to be the most beautiful of all waterfowl, the wood duck is highly prized by hunters and makes up more than ten percent of the annual waterfowl harvest in the United States. It is second only to the mallard in the number of birds harvested in the Mississippi flyway.
