Wood Duck Information

Wood Duck

The wood duck is the most important species to South Carolina waterfowl enthusiasts and is the only duck for which we can effectively manage production habitat. These ducks frequent wooded streams and ponds; and perch in trees. They fly through thick timber with speed and ease and often feed on acorns, berries, and grapes on the florest floor.
