Duck Box

Built by a neighbor, a few years ago, the box sits in the phragmites.

I've never actually seen a duck in the nesting box but we do have plenty of ducks on the river.

It is my understanding that this is built specifically for Wood Ducks, and we mainly see Mallards here.

At this time of year, the Buffleheads come to visit, migrating through Long Island, and away from the windy Great South Bay.
