Make nesting easier for wood ducks and hooded mergansers with this cute nest box. Since wood ducks are incapable of excavating a nesting cavity, they must rely on existing holes or man-made habitats for their shelter.
This house is specially designed for wood ducks. The interior of the house is rough pine with a ladder attached to the front panel, which makes it easy for ducklings to climb out and swim with their mother. It comes with wood chips for nesting material, so the eggs stay insulated and securely in their nest.
Slanted roof and drainage and ventilation holes ensure the nest cavity stays fresh and dry, keeping the house clean, and comfortable.
This nest box is designed specifically for wood ducks and hooded mergansers. It comes with species-specific literature and mounting instructions.
Mount this Wood Duck House to a post over land or water and give a family of ducks a place to live. Tilt up the front panel for easy seasonal cleaning. Made in the USA.
