Dump nesting occurs when a number of females lay eggs in a single house, which sometimes results in clutches with over 70 eggs. Mississippi State University did a study of Wood Ducks in an effort to reduce this problem. A smaller nest box was designed and dump nesting was reduced. Although fewer ducklings are fledged from each box, the survival rate is improved and the cost per fledgling is less. This box comes with a wire ladder and nesting chips, and the front opens for observation and cleaning.

NOTE: All of our nesting boxes open up for easy cleaning of the nest box! The clean out panel for this nesting box is on the right hand side when facing the entrance from the outside. It is "hinged" at the top, swings open from the bottom and is held closed by an "L" bracket located at the lower rear of the panel.

RANGE: Breeds from British Columbia south to California, and from Montana east to Nova Scotia, and south to Texas and Florida; absent from Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. Winters near Pacific Coast north to Washington, and to New Jersey in East, rarely further north.

HABITAT: Nests beside wooded rivers and ponds. Visits freshwater marshes in late summer and fall.

Dimensions: 17 in. x 7 1/2 in. x 15 in..
Hole Size: 3 in. x 4 in.

Construction: The duck house is made from Eastern White pine and the entrance hole is an oval hole that is 3 in. x 4 in.
