Nearly forced to extinction by over-hunting and loss of habitat early in the 20th Century, the Wood Duck has made a dramatic comeback through protection and erection of nest boxes. I observe these birds in riparian areas in central Arizona and featured these “woodies” with the wood patterns of velvet ash and cottonwood. Riparian areas are already scarce in Arizona, and climate change predictions could mean the loss of all wood ducks in Arizona in about 30 years. I find watercolor to be the ideal medium to indicate texture in both birds and trees.
