A mother Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) and one of its ducklings.

he population of the Wood Duck was in serious decline in the late 19th century as a result of severe habitat loss as well as market hunting for both plumage for the ladies' hat market in Europe and meat. By the beginning of the 20th century Wood Ducks had virtually disappeared from much of their original habitat. Early conservationists then began to act, which would later result in the enactment of the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.

Since then the wood duck populations began to slowly recover and continue to grow.
