Wood Duck Box Successes!

Wood Duck BoxTeresa Burton, who is in charge of Wood Duck box monitoring for the Minneapolis Park Board had the following comments about this year’s activity in the boxes around Diamond Lake:

Great news: both houses were successful! One house had down, shells, and membranes…only 2 unhatched eggs and the other had shells and membranes and 5 unhatched eggs. What is very interesting is that for the last two years both houses had successful hatches but the same box had no down either year.
Just to recap: 2014 (first year): Unhatched eggs only. Used by hen but possible dump nest? 2015: Down (1 house), eggs, membranes, a few unhatched eggs in each. Success! 2016: Down(1 house), eggs, membranes, fewer unhatched eggs. Success!
