Correction...WOOD DUCK not a Mallard in March 2 post

I learn something new everyday!

My middle son Alex tells me the duck that came down the chimney a few weeks ago is a WOOD duck not a Mallard! He took ONE look at the photo, and said, "Wood Duck..look at the mask around the eyes". He is surely right. It is his field of study, and his business, Southern Wildlife and Land Management. As a young boy Alex roamed the beautiful woodlands here everyday. Soon he knew the forests, and waterways over most of the state, like most people know the streets and landmarks of their city!

So forgive me for incorrectly calling this beautiful duck a Mallard in the March 2 post!
