I have been building wood duck boxes for the past ten years. Ornithology and bird watching have been a large part of my life since I was very young. I haven't got a chance to watch any baby ducks fly out of this box I built. I give away the boxes to friends and I have had a few friends get a chance to see the little ducks leaving the nest.
It is sunny hear today, but the wind is cold out of the north. Most of the ducks and other birds seem to be in hiding. It was seventy degrees last weekend, and it has been cold and snowy for the last few days.
Minnesota DNR Wood Duck Page. It shows their range and has a ton of other great facts concerning this duck.
