    The Wood Duck is one of the most stunningly pretty of all waterfowl. Males are iridescent chestnut and green, with ornate patterns on nearly every feather; the elegant females have a distinctive profile and delicate white pattern around the eye. These birds live in wooded swamps, where they nest in holes in trees or in nest boxes put up around lake margins.   Woodcutters is widely recognised as his masterpiece. Over the course of a few hours, following a performance of Ibsen’s The Wild Duck, we are in the company of the Auersbergers, and our narrator, who never once leaves the relative comfort of his ‘wing-backed chair’ where he sips at a glass of champagne.

The sides of the face are black, and a white stripe runs along the neck.
