Description

Wood Ducks have claimed box number D1 for the past four years. This year there are 21 eggs being incubated. Other wood duck females have added there eggs to this nest. A second box was monitored on April 14, and a small female wood duck was observed sprawled across many, many eggs. It appeared she was even trying to incubate them with her wings, head and neck because there were so many and the floor area was so big.
