Hi Gail -
Last year I saw a group of wood ducks that looked like this. I've never seen
this appearance of woodies before. I only knew what they were because I saw
them with mom. When I went back a week later they had changed into something
that looked more like a woodie. My conclusion was that there is a short
period of time when woodies have this appearance. Maybe someone else has
seen this as well.
