Our Wood Duck Sanctuary

MOULTRIE DIGITAL GAME CAMERA

Grandson Garrett discovered this deep slough on our farm that appears to hold water year round. The slough is probably one hundred yards long.   He has declared it an area off-limits to duck hunting.   We erected two wood duck boxes to encourage the ducks to nest and raise their young.   We hung a corn feeder that dispenses some corn in the water.  This might keep squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, hogs, deer and birds from eating corn meant for ducks.   Another nice thing about this site is the abundance of acorns.   Many of the acorns fall directly into the water.    We’re looking forward to capturing some wood duck images on the game camera.
