Fun Friday: Where the Boys Are

I believe that was the name of an old Connie Francis movie or song. In this instance, it is a group of Wood Duck drakes (males), flying after a Wood Duck hen (female). While kayaking this week, Wood Ducks were very common as they are tending to band into somewhat large groups as we start to head into the fall migration. In this situation, a single hen flew overhead with a group of drakes:
