Fun Feeder Photo: Wood Ducks!

February 28, 2012

When Marcia Mason reported Wood Ducks at her feeders in Sechelt, British Columbia, we were a little surprised. So Marcia sent us a photo of her “feeder ducks.”  Enjoy this gem!

    that’s amazing! had no idea they would do that, they always seem so shy. I’ll be on the lookout this spring, maybe they will show up at mine if I move a feeder closer to the woods. (Maryland)

    That red-winged blackbird is over there ‘doe dee doe, I’ll just mind my own business…’ lol Then I’m thinking, who gets red-wingeds in to eat birdseed at a feeder? I’ve never seen that either! Wonder what the surrounding habitat is. The male woody needs the platform modified, a nice keel support and tail support please, and bigger openings in the wire so he can really chow down, and oh maybe a side order of mealworms and a duckweed chaser 🙂

      Hi MEQue – I get RedWings at my feeders all the time – when I lived in a wooded area I did and now I live by a natural pond and I still get them…..

      We’ve had Red Wing Blackbirds at our feeders forever. Trees around the perimeter of our property and big field behind. Never had Wood Ducks though! Cool!! 🙂

    I can’t imagine what the landings were like…a bit Daytona 500-ish, I suspect. Would’ve been fun to watch. The take-offs were probably priceless, too, now that I think about it!

    We missed seeing Wood Ducks in our creek this last year. Maybe it was because our creek was dry due to the Texas drought. Hmmmm.

    So birds of a feather get hungry also

    I thought I got some interesting feeder birds, but that is something else! We had a Wood Duck pair roost in our tree over night, so maybe some day… Red-wingeds come to our feeders in the summer and will eat from the large tube.
