I was out putting a new fence in and I walked under this oak tree and heard a loud nice from the tree. When I looked up I saw a duck perched on a limb. It was around dusk and I thought that he might be roosting for the night like other birds but I never knew that ducks roosted in trees. Was this duck missing some brain function or is it common for them to roost in trees?

more than likely it was a hen woody...they will nest in a tree
I would agree... but they normally like to nest near water so when the young come out the nest, they plot down into it. How far are you from a water source?
