Momma Wood Duck

Despite it still being hot and humid today I went out early afternoon with my friend to Rahway River Park in Rahway to take some pictures. We saw 2 families of wood ducks in the park. There were cute little babies everywhere and one family was curious enough to come over closer. We also saw an egret fly in and the mother wood duck face off with him to protect her kids. Then we headed over to Jackson, the Clark section of Rahway River Park and saw a 3rd wood duck family. The female appearred to have 5 juveniles still following her around. And we also know there is a family of wood duck at Bloodgoods Pond located in Clark, behind the town of Winfield Park. Havent seen the original friendly Woody but it sure is nice to have all these young ones around. Hope some of them stick around through the winter! See more below.
