- It shows a pair, doesn't it? —innotata 18:01, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that articles were supposed to have rhetorical questions.
am looking for the meaning that is used in Australia, when one calls another a 'Wood Duck', what does this actually mean?
it means the person mainly eats seeds and feeds by dabbling on land
I'd like to see a reference for the range map. How do we know it's not plagiarism or original research? Calibas 02:28, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

|Picture of the day|
The Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) is a species of duck, with adults averaging 47 to 54 cm (19 to 21 in) in length with a wingspan of 66 to 73 cm (26 to 29 in). Owing to their attractive colouration, the ducks have often been brought to Britain from their native North America; this specimen was photographed at St. James's Park in London.

15 or 88?
"The ducklings may jump from heights of up to 88 m (290 ft) without injury."
That sure is amazing. Especially when Wikipedia in other languages only has them jump 15 meters (about 50 ft). Is there any reliable source that has them jump from this incredible height? --Anna C. (talk) 21:47, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
