I'd also appreciate the detail, so please respond on the board, not just to Kevin.

  Will the New Milford couple who spotted the 100 plus wood ducks on Mud 
  Pond please reply. I'm from southern New Milford on Candlewood Lake and 
  the most wood ducks I've ever seen were on a swampy pond near my house 
  in the spring of 2012 where I saw 4 and on Horseshoe Pond in Wilton same 
  year again maybe 5 at the most with plenty of Ringed necked ducks.

  This year both spots mentioned several times not a one. So when I saw 
  your post I loaded up the big gun plugged Mud Pond into the GPS & took 
  off (Sunday). Some wild road but I saw no ducks. Mind u it began to rain 
  and my question where do u park since the road is barely one car width 
  wide and where exactly did u c them and is worth another try.

  Should u park on Bull's Bridge & Mud Pond road & walk or take your 
  chances on Mud Pond itself? Seeing 100 plus at once would make my year.
