The wood duck nests in cavities in trees, but will accept man-made nest boxes as well. Once severely depleted due to over-hunting and habitat loss, this species has benefited greatly from wetlands restoration.
The feet of the wood duck are webbed for swimming, but it also has sharp claws adapted for perching in trees.
