I found a trio of Wood Ducks (Aix sponsa) in the Dell Water on Saturday. These birds nest in tree cavities or nest boxes, rather atypically for our ducks. And they have nested in Brooklyn before.The Dell Water was busy with three species of warbler, woodpeckers, and jays hooting and hollering in the distance, and incoming Canada Geese making a splash. The nearby Crescent Water had only this Great Egret poised to strike and the sound of a Kingfisher flying away.
