My arrival at the wetland scattered the Wood Duck family. After concealing myself I waited quietly for the wildlife to resume their normal habits. After about an hour the Wood Duck hen returned calling incessantly trying to reassemble her little family.
A pair of Wood Duck males arrived feeding along the water's edge.
And this tiny duckling swam to within a few feet of my hiding spot. It knew that the clicking going on in the bushes wasn't normal and was brave enough to approach for a closer look.
