g'day all,
Paul Hackett provided me with the answer to Mike Boyd's query.
The early (1 to 4) editions of S & D illustrate the green on edge of the male's wing when at rest.
But Paul gave me the clue to go to the Victorian Natural Resources and Environment site at
Click "Plants and Animals"
Search for the words  " Australian Waterfowl  "
Click the outline of the Wood Duck.
(The URL for this page is too long to include here.)
Frank Knight's illustration clearly shows the stripe on upperwing as green.
I did not realise from S & D 5th & 6th editions this stripe was green.
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
