Just Add Wood Ducks

Up North

Several years ago, Ken was kind enough to make an excellent wood duck house for me to hang near the lake.  It’s nicely built, and has a nice bed of cedar shavings for the wood ducks to use for nesting material.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wood duck before, but their range is throughout the entire state.  A picture of a wood duck is below, in case you’re curious.

The wood duck house now hangs about 7 feet in the air and faces south, per the instructions.  We’ll see if any wood ducks move in.  I’ll position my motion-detecting camera trap nearby to capture any attempts.  Also, our friend ‘Woody’, pictured below, will keep an eye on the wood duck house for us.
