Wood Duck On Ice - Boise, Idaho

I have moved to my summer residence west of Donnelly Idaho and the snow has finally melted enough to get my trailer hooked up to power. I should have waited a month before I moved up here. It still seems like winter. It is raining right now.
I maintain three Wood Duck nest boxes along Cascade Lake which is 165 paces from where I am posting. There have been two pair of Wood Ducks investigating the nest boxes and I hope another pair shows up so that all three boxes get used this year.


  1. Stunning capture with great light.

  2. I found your blog while looking for new information on wood ducks. How has it gone the past several years? I mantain about 50 boxes in Western Washington and maintain them with the help of Boy Scouts and HS Bio Students. If a FaceBook member check out Cavity Nesters of Hazelwolf Wetland or/and Cavity Nesters of Canyon Creek wetland. Put a like on them if you want to follow our journey.I'm interested to hear how your boxes have done. I look forward to hearing from you.
