Yes, I have two boxes up, one on Lake side which is in my back yard, then this one that's across the street on my 2 acres next to a brake. This box 2 years ago hatched 24 at one time....two pair of wood ducks laid eggs in it, hatched all 24 but 2 where dead in the box, 22 jumped.

Awesome pictures. I think the male wood duck is one of the wildest looking birds there is. My grandma had one on her pond while we were fishing a couple weeks ago.

That is cool! We put a box up a while back in my pond, maybe they'll nest in it next year. They come regularly, I keep corn along the back bank for them.
