Wood Duck Box Maintenance (Part 2)


   This Wood Duck nesting box had lost its bottom, and had a split side IMG_6971panel, so ace carpenter Ken Buxton got out his trusty toolkit and repaired it.

   First, he installed a spiffy new oak floor (this is Allendale, after all), then put a brace on the side of the box.

   He also braced another box,  and the requisite wood chips were then added to the boxes before the ice became too iffy to venture out on.

   The one irritating aspect of Ken's work is that he made it look too easy -- when it required all sorts of planning and measuring and cutting and other carpenter stuff. (Thanks, Ken!)

   The "Room Available" signs go up on March 1.
