I don't think I have ever been first here! Your Wood Ducks are amazing...Like a work of art!
The wood ducks way of saying they love you right back.
The little girl Wood Ducks are pretty too! Or are those juveniles? The one in the bottom picture looks smallish. Some fun clicks Tex!
If it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and sounds like a duck, it just might be a beautiful wood duck.
Wat zijn ze geweldig mooi.
MY - they're pretty impressive 'wood ducks'
Wow! That guy has everything; spots, stripes, iridescence, every possible thing!
I love the spots on their chest:@)
I never knew that shape of their bill....AWESOME!!!!...:)JP
Wood ducks are so awesome, a real treat to see one, much less a flock!
Morning, such beautiful pictures of the Wood ducks. You are indeed lucky to have them, love the heart, Blessings Francine.

Wood ducks are so colorful. Nice shots!
A handsome bird with lovely markings; glad you pointed out the heart on his bill.

Intense eyes, don't you think?
So pretty! Ducks are a huge favorite here.
I really love their red eyes!!!
They are such pretty ducks!
They do have the most beautiful colors- great shots Theresa!
Beautiful! Quack! Quack!I love their feathers.
they are lovely - I've never noticed the heart on the bill. I guess I've just always been stunned by the sheer overall beauty.
I just love the males head, so colorful.
They are such beautiful birds.
Fantastic shots and LOL photobombed by a blackbird. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
I do see the heart! Such crisp, clear photos. They are gorgeous.
they are just so very beautiful, so perfectly painted in their colors.
What gorgeous coloring the wood ducks have!
You are a Lucky Lady! These are Awesome!
Very cool! I was thinking I might visit a local conservation area to see if the wood ducks have arrived her...but it looks like they are still in Texas!
Love those eye markings. They are beautiful birds. :-)
Oh those are my favorite ducks! They swim so fast. They are like the road runners of ducks. haha. Beautiful!
The Wood Ducks are fabulous looking birds in all their colorful plumage. Yup, saw that heart!
Gorgeous shots T! How wonderful to have these visitors. xo
The ducks should throw you a party. You have done so much to show us their uniqueness and beauty.
I do see the heart! I feel it from their cuteness too.
He is so pretty he doesn't even look real.
They have beautiful colors and are very nice.
Between male wood ducks and male ringneck pheasants they have got to be the most beautiful of birds.
these are just beautiful therese!! so much "up close" feather detail and color detail. i even see purple!!and a heart for clytie, so sweet, she's really going to love this!!
and are you sure they are real?? hehe
How lucky you are having these beautiful ducks in your area,Tex!!So preety birds!!Wish you a happy day!Dimi...
They look pretty realistic for ducks made of wood!
Wow, these are lovely closeups! And I do see the heart on his bill.
They just don't look real!
Boa tarde, Caso não dissesse que os patos são de madeira, pensava que são reias. Abraçoaghttp://momentosagomes-ag.blogspot.pt/
The males are quite colourful, but I like the understated beauty of the females. Cute little heart shape on the bill!
That brighter colors!I have a difficult week Teresa. Come to the hospital, Salamanca, we operate Paco hernia. I'll be back next week;)A kiss.
They are incredible, both ducks and your photos! WOW!(ツ) from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!
They are beautiful! One of the species I am eager to photograph.
They are colorful quackers indeed!!
These ducks have such an appealing feather pattern. The colors look so good. I'm glad you pointed out the heart on their bills.
These beautiful ducks look like they'd easily win a staring contest. Can they blink, or do they just cover their eyes with their wings?
One of the most beautiful ducks on the planet. I think the female, although muted, is still quite lovely.
Lovely captures! Janey said a work of art. She's right, like a beautiful piece of abstract art with an eye. :)I've never seen one and around blog world it's the male who gets all the attention. Thanks for giving the female some fame time as well. I rather like her combined colors.
Hi Theresa, Lucky you - Whistlers, Woodies, and Mallards! Plus horses, pups, egrets, herons, and occasionally other wildlife visiting. Wonderful pond you have on the Run-A-Round Ranch! Have a very nice afternoon!
Beautiful ducks gorgeous colors..
My all time favorite duck! Gosh he's stunning and the girls are gorgeous too.
Oh my they are just so pretty.
Love the markings especially the colors and the heart. :)
Very sweet faces. MB
So vivid and crisp! Excellent, Tex!
Good job, Yes, pretty ducks, great photos!
Awesome photos !
Hmm, great pictures. Ducks have a beautiful coloration. Greetings from far, spring Polish. Lucia
Am lustigsten ist das vorletzte Foto. Das hätte ich gern erlebt.
They almost don't look real.
No matter how many times I see them, I also enjoy their bright colors. Both the drake and hen are so unique. More special visitors:)
love the close ups & all the details of the little dudes. neat-o!! ( :
Fabulous birds. Love that heart, Tex!
They're very handsome ducks. I love the heart on the bill.
Mr & Mrs, I love 'em.
T, such pretty ducks!
Truly beautiful ducks. I should be seeing them here very soon.
I do see the heart!They always look slightly mad to me, with that wildly glaring red eye. Need I say "BWAHAHAHA! We are ALL mad here!"?
Lovely serie of these Wood ducks, - so colorful!
Believe it or not, the wood ducks are not native here. We see the odd one from time to time.
These guys are cute! I love their deep coloring.
A really nice look at the Wood Ducks! I had never noticed the heart on their beaks. Good eye for detail!
I think they are so beautiful. Always to me they look almost carved. They would be so nice to sit and watch. Also lovely shots.
I love your eye for detail. Precious little heart.
Tex, you are so lucky to have the Wood ducks and whistling ducks!! They are beautiful with gorgeous colors.. Great shots!
Wow, what a heart!
Love the heart! I think these females are so pretty. :)
Extraordinary coloring, so beautiful!
Wow, what colorfull ducks !
Wow, that's close! Their patterns and colors are awesome!
They are stunning!
I love the Wood Ducks ... the male coloring is so precise and the females have the sweetest face ever. We get them here too, but they are very shy and keep hidden most of the time. The males seem to disappear after the babies are hatched and all we see is Mom and her little string of hatchlings. Great pictures, Theresa ...Andrea @ From The Sol
Amazing.You live in a corner of heaven!
This duck is so on my "wish list." Someday .... wonderful pictures and yes I see the perfect heart!
Wood ducks are so pretty. The male has such fancy patterns, but for some reason I always think the female is the prettier one.
Wow! Beautiful shots of these colorful ducks!
Dearest Theresa;The males are quite colorful and almost as if figurine in your beautiful pictures♡♡♡Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
Oh my! How amazingly colorful and beautiful! What lovely visitors....xo Karen
Very beautiful pictures, these ducks are not real! Hug
Dearest Theresa,Youre photography is incredible! Like we can touch those wood ducks.Hugs,MariettePS I did leave a reply to your comment: Dearest Theresa,This solution works like a charm as it has proven its worth already when we had the Tornado. Yesterday was another heavy rain day with thunderstorms. So glad this is solved now!Hugs,Mariette
Wood ducks - they look hand painted, don't they?
Lovely shots of these birds. They are very pretty.
They are so exotic looking, as if they might have been dreamed up by and painted by an Artist. The femmes are just as beautiful in their own neutral way, with the blue and white splashesand dots on their chests.Certainly my favorites of the exotics!Cheers, Tex!Jo
Good study photographs for your next colored pencil drawing... Sure are gorgeous birds!
You get the most interesting ducks! I love the markings (and the heart) on these.
So beautiful! Great shots, Tex.
WOW!! Amazing snaps. Crystal clear shots my friend. They look great.Hugs~
Love the markings on the wood duck.
Pretty darn amazing :D)
Oh my gosh, I love the heart on his bill. They are both so beautiful.
I love wood ducks. They are so beautiful and interesting.
Hi tex. utterly stunning coloured duck.
Great shots of these ducks, i love their colours
Beautiful colors on them. Very attractive.
Amazing! They have such wonderful colors.
Great looking ducks!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Wow T these are magnicifant ducks!!! Love these!!Rain
The are magnificent!
I'm sure that heart says LOVE don't you?Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
beautiful ducks, we see them here sometimes, when they escape from private collections.
Oh my, they are handsome!~Lindy
So wonderful they are!
awesome capture on the ducks! amazing details
The male wood duck has some amazing and vibrant colors.
What gorgeous ducks - what an amazing heart! I'm so glad you linked it up with Guest Heart Thursday! It's absolutely perfect!!!
What wonderful photos! I saw the heart on this beauty's bill, but also, on that same picture, just to the left on the duck's breast, is another heart! lol So cool.Have a lovely day--I do so enjoy your blog. Happy Guest Heart Thursday!
These are so pretty! Finally, the female gets equal opportunity on display. She's really quite pretty on her own, she just pales in comparison to the male. It looks like everyone was trying to get into the act in that photo with the blackbird, can't quite identify the other photo-bomber.
It's so easy to be amazed and awed by the coloring on the male wood duck. He's perfect...like God used His best paintbrushes and oils! But, the female is such a lovely surprise, with such delicate colors....well, I think I like her better. I particularly love the teal and purple under he wing! Gorgeous!
your images really do this species justice, vibrant and sharp, brilliant bird, lovely post
Their colors are just magnificent!
gorgeous. i think the ladies are pretty beautiful as well.
Oh my, you are so lucky to see them so conveniently. We get very few down here in Florida, but when we go back to Illinois they are somewhat easier to find. Wonderful color and detail.
They are so beautiful color these ducks. Both men and women. I would love if they are around you have so many ducks. You're just a lucky :-) Regards, Helma
They are so beautiful!!!
Great shots! I've always loved wood ducks.
Your duck photos are just fantastic! I love these, especially the good looking young chap.
Fabulous pictures, T!!!!! We had one show up here last week and nibble outside my fence. He was hot for a mallard mama. :)I did not get good pictures because of this dumb wrought iron fence.
