Finally a successful nesting

Postby golferboy426 » Sun Mar 17, 2013 1:39 pm

I have a small pond in back of my house. For 4 or 5 years I've had a wood duck house out. This year when I retrieved the house I found evidence of a successful brood. About 6 I'd say. Odd thing is I never saw any of them and the pond is no more than 150 feet in diameter and 150 feet from my kitchen window from which I can see the box

Looks like you got an alligator problem


Not unless they have down . What you are seeing is the egg membranes. The shells themselves crush very easily and are all mixed in the wood chips.

Haven't seen any woodies on the pond yet but I did see a pair at my hunting spot yesterday along with a single black
