Egg-Sighting Duck Tube News

We posted a few weeks ago about our on going conservation project where we have been creating duck nesting tubes to increase safe nesting sites, to help raise the hatching rate of wild mallards.  We are pleased to announce that after doing our routine inspections that some of those nesting tubes are now in use.

Hoping that our next sighting is of a healthy paddling of ducklings.
