(The photo on the right by Jerry Barrack is of a male and female Wood Duck atop one of the boxes in the spring.)
Most of the boxes had at least one unhatched Wood Duck egg, A few of them exploded on the ice, which made me jump at first.
Bird of the day -- the only bird of the day -- was a Bald Eagle.
We did the maintenance on five of the seven boxes.The other two were broken.
One had been ripped down by skaters some time yesterday, so we will have to replace it.
Ditto one that hockey players destroyed last year.
Just like the Wood Duck boxes, there can be a bad egg or two.
