The adult wood duck male has distinctive multi-colored iridescent plumage and red eyes. The female, less colourful, has a white eye-ring and a whitish throat. Both adults have crested heads. When swimming, wood ducks bob their head back and forth in a jerking motion, which makes them easy to spot. These birds feed by dabbling or walking on land. They mainly eat berries and seeds, but also insects. The male's call is a rising whistle; the female gives a whistled whoo-eek if startled.
