Our neighbor Jonathan Schlueter’s mission is to provide nesting space for our local wood ducks. He built 5 new duck boxes this week and offered to come over and install one on a tree in the wetlands. Of course I said “yes”. I’ve watched my neighbor’s (Jay) box with nesting pairs for a couple of years.

Chickadee box which Jay built a few weeks ago. Jonathan moved it higher so it will be more habitable.
Jay’s box already has a nesting pair so I’m hopeful we’ll see some action in the next week.
