[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The last one from my recent trip.

Wood Ducks may use the same nest site year after year, and it was long presumed that the same pair returned together. More recently, through banding, it has been found that it is the female that comes back, but invariably with a new mate. Pairing occurs on the wintering grounds and, when the northward migration begins, she leads him to the nest site of the year before. In some species, such as the Yellow Warbler, it is the male that returns each year; but in these cases pairing does not occur until nest construction is about to commence
