Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Considered by many to be North America’s most beautiful waterfowl, the Wood Duck is a well-loved resident of southern Canada throughout the warm summer months. This unique duck nests in tree cavities, living primarily on vegetation in and near waterways and wetlands.

The coloured reverse image by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant features a Wood Duck breeding pair swimming in a pond dotted with lily pads. In the foreground swims the colourful male, viewed in profile from his left side. Each detail of his unique colour pattern is majestically captured, from his iridescent crested head with its bright red eye, white outline pattern, and vibrant yellow, orange, and black bill, to his metallic blue wing feathers, russet breast, and golden flank. His image is beautifully reflected in the water in which he swims. In the background, swimming beside her partner, is the lovely female with her predominantly brown and white body, crested head, distinctive white eye markings, blue bill, and indigo and aubergine wing feathers. In the background is a dense stand of striking green lily pads dotted with soft yellow water lilies. The reverse is coloured with specialized inks using an advanced process colour designed to adhere to metal.
