Harlequin Duck

Harlequin Duck

This Harlequin Duck was captured after it came out of the Yellowstone River at the south end of the LeHardys Rapids. This diving duck loves rapid flowing mountain water. It is also known to walk on the floor of the stream while eating dinner. I have watch them fly past where they want to come out of the water and swim against the current to get up on their selected perch. You can see in the picture below the type of water they enjoy.

American Wood Duck

America's counterpart to the Chinese Mandarin duck is a beautiful duck called the American Wood Duck. Often called Woodie or Woodies since they like wooded areas. Though the drake is highly colorful they can be hard to spot as they rest under overhanging branches. Look for them in beaver ponds, streams, marshes, swamps, and lake-shores/ponds with overhanging branches.
