This began with a question from Floyd: "Can you/one tell the sex of a juvenile Wood Duck? Since Wood Ducks have become far less afraid of
people at the Delta Ponds along the river, and since their were four pairs of Wood Ducks raising families in the Spring and Summer of 2013,
it was easy for me to take pictures of them several days a week.
My objective was to determine at what point the chicks/juvenile birds
first begin to show any markings which definitively indicate which sex they are.
