Our Wood Duck Sanctuary

GQ_Camera_2014

Our farm has a slough (drainage or ditch that holds water year round) in a hardwood forest.   Our grandson discovered this swampy area last year.  Recently, he discovered it was a favorite site for wood ducks.   So he designated it as our Wood Duck Sanctuary.   We erected two wood duck boxes for nesting.  We also placed a corn feeder near waters edge.  We plan to feed year round.

Recently, our game camera caught four wood ducks near the feeder and the nest.  Hopefully, the camera will catch the ducks entering or exiting a nest.   And then a real fabulous photo would be ducklings exiting the nest next spring.
