Library Pond, Union City, CA
This is the only wood duck that migrates to the pond. I understand that years ago there were several, but this is the only one left. I have been watching it for the past four years and am thrilled every year when it shows up during migratory season. Even though it's smaller than the mallards, it is feisty and chases them away when they get too close.
