Spring at last!!

We were so excited to see this pair of Wood Ducks swimming in our pond! I hope they nest close by ~ How Fun!

Wood Ducks pair up on their wintering grounds.

Then the female leads the drake back to the region where she was hatched or to the area where she nested the year before.

She lays 10 to 15 creamy white eggs in a tree hollow or a large woodpecker hole as high as 50 feet from the ground.

We have an abondance of Affiliated Woodpeckers in our woods.

So there are many places for them to nest!

Happy Spring!
