Wood Duck
The Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) is a species of duck, with adults averaging 47 to 54 cm (19 to 21 in) in length with a wingspan of 66 to 73 cm (26 to 29 in). Owing to their attractive colouration, the ducks have often been brought to Britain from their native North America; this specimen was photographed at St. James's Park in London.Photograph: David Iliff

15 or 88?[edit]

"The ducklings may jump from heights of up to 88 m (290 ft) without injury."

That sure is amazing. Especially when Wikipedia in other languages only has them jump 15 meters (about 50 ft).[1] Is there any reliable source that has them jump from this incredible height? --Anna C. (talk) 21:47, 24 May 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Why would anyone want to hunt such a beautiful animal? People are sick. "Oh it's for food", no sorry, you're sick, admit it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:37, 20 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
