Wetland waterfowl

Charlie a volunteer from the Susquehanna River Waterfowlers reports that the group recently worked on waterfowl nesting boxes. Volunteers cleaned, repaired and refilled the boxes with new nesting material. According to Charlie, the boxes on posts in the water are working quite well and one already had three eggs in it.

One of the boxes has fallen into the water and the group will be working to replace it along with a couple other boxes placed on trees. The tree boxes seem to attract squirrels and owls. It took several tries to evict a Screech Owl from one of the nest boxes.

Of the six boxes directly across from the wetlands, two had eggs. There were 11 eggs in one and 13 in another!
