Stop 5 - Wood Duck Nest Box

Wood ducks are one of the most colorful ducks found in Connecticut. They are unique because they are cavity–nesters. They nest in cavities. Most other dabbling ducks nest on the ground. Artificial nest boxes mimic natural cavities. These boxes have helped restore populations of cavity–nesters like the wood duck. This particular box successfully hatched out a family of wood ducks. It has also been used for shelter by screech owls and gray squirrels. Other nest boxes were placed throughout the river area. Contact the DEEP Wildlife Division at 860-424-3011 for the nest box plans. Click here for: DEEP Wildlife/Wood Duck Facts
