Wood Ducks are found on sheltered ponds, rivers, swamps or wherever there is standing water among trees. They nest in tree cavities or boxes and feed mainly on acorns and other seeds. High Park is a perfect habitat for them.
High Park views:
The season comes when, from her three-month’s trance,
The Earth awakens: already her deep heart
Begins to stir, and send its life abroad. – Thomas Buchanan Read (1822–72)
