Wood ducks live widespread across North America in cavities within trees near Swamps, Shallow lakes, marshes, creeks, and ponds.
Unlike other ducks, wood ducks have sharp clawed feet for perching in trees. They have a natural diet of acorns, seeds, and berries but will eat insects as well so they are considered omnivores. Wood ducks sleep while on the water, though females will sleep on land with their ducklings.
