Waterfowl Nest Box Monitoring Winter 2015/2016

It's that time of year to take advantage of this short window of time when the ice on the ponds is thick enough to walk on. We monitor several waterfowl nest boxes on the property and have been for over 75 years.  Wood ducks and hooded mergansers frequently use the boxes during their breeding seasons, which occurs in March and April.  

I also observed river otter tracks at Beaver Pond today.
