I have a beaver pond on my land and I was wondering what I could do to attract ducks to it. Last year I saw two wood ducks on it and would like to get some more. Any thing to help. THANKS.

Great suggestion on the nesting box. wood duck boxes are easy to make.
Be sure and have the swinging door on it for easy cleanout. Fill the box with sawdust and clean it out each winter. If you don't clean it out they will usually not use it again.
It only takes two or three handfulls of sawdust per nesting box.

Plant some food source for them. Another important part is that duck are in the area. If they never fly by, or near it's going to be hard.
