I agree that adult female has dark eyes (most of time:)
Juvenile will have light. I still think it’s juvenile (molting?)
But I’ve enjoyed all of your photos of them, what ever they are. :)

Over and out.

Both of your shots are really nicely done. I do prefer the second one. I like the profile better.

Weja - I wish there was a tool on the forum to automatically like everything you post. Always fantastic stuff.

Gorgeous shot, Mike! Is that recent? I saw some recent wood duck photo from my friends, and they look like still molting and ugly, no where near this pretty.

Terrific shot, Robert. Very sharp and beautifully composed.

Thank you guys very much for your thoughtful and encouraging comments. They are most definitely appreciated.

Shalu; this shot was actually taken back in early May. Most are still in molt now, but I'm seeing some that will be colored up in not too long.
