Awaiting additional nesting wood duck hens in boxes where we can install our cameras. We will relocate cameras to other boxes after these ducklings hatch and jump. Nesting season generally starts in late March to early April and can last until late June. Cameras will be LIVE only when there is nesting activity (generally April, May,& June) otherwise they will be OFF AIR. We may have a kestrel or screech owl nest to relocate the camera to once the current hens hatch their ducklings.

Wood duck hens generally will lay an egg a day in the morning. A nest typically has about 8 to 12 eggs, but occasionally multiple hens will lay eggs in the same box and there may be 18 to 24 eggs before one of the hens will claim the nest and incubate the eggs. Incubation lasts about 30 days. During the incubation the hen will only leave the nest for a short break for food and water generally after dawn and near dusk. When she leaves she will cover the eggs with the shavings and down so that it is difficult to tell that there is a nest of eggs. Once the ducklings hatch they will only be in the box for about 24 hours before they climb to the entrance and jump to the ground. The hen will determine when the ducklings are ready, then she will verify the coast is clear, and go to the ground below the nest and call to the ducklings. The "jump" may only last a minute or two from start to finish. Once on the ground the hen leads the ducklings to water so they can forage for food. Ducklings eat small insects, mosquito larva, invertebrates, and small plant life.
