wood duck

On January 4 it was the Christmas bird count I was birding a different stretch of road, but on the following day when I got to my dads house he said that some one saw a wood duck by flume circle. He had gone over there earlier in the day but did not see it, so I went over there shortly after I had gotten there and did not see any thing. Later in the day though a friend (who is working on 1,000 species project) took us over there again to see if we could find it we did find it this time. Later in the day some one else went to see the wood duck and accidentally scared it away it did not get seen again till about three weeks later on the 28 of January, but I did not see it again till the 31 of January. The last time I was able to go see it was February 3 I saw it then to.I have only seen two ever in Sitka Alaska this one was my first male wood duck the one I saw before saw a female and it was at swan lake.

Wood ducks are rare in AK. I have seen a hand full here in Sitka over the last decade. @bluejay2007

Any Egrets, House Sparrows, Mourning dove, Eared grebe, Clark's grebe, any Rail, and Nighthawks are just a few of the birds that are more common in the low 48, but are rare in Alaska.
