CELERY FARM: Waiting for the wood ducks
April 17, 2008
I look out at Lake Appert and see wood ducks paired off and house-hunting, but I have not seen any wood-duck activity at my wood-duck box.
A check of the video cam inside reveals nothing new.
It has been a year now since the nor-easter of 2007 flooded the Celery Farm and my backyard, and I have been half-expecting to see a female perched on top of the box any day now.
I have heard that wood ducks tend to use the same box every year.
We shall see.
