Wood Duck Box

Wood Duck Box over lake with 9 eggs. Noticed door jutting out at bottom so went to secure the latch but wood had swelled so latch wouldn’t keep door closed. When we opend the door, one egg fell into the water. We were able to secure the door so no more eggs would fall out and no predators could get in.
