With the thought of warmer temperatures coming in the next month or so, my husband and I were inspired to make some nest boxes for wood ducks and a barred owl. I think the owls might be nesting now; however, there may yet be a “late romance” for a pair of owls who will find this box just right. We wanted to get the duck boxes up while there was still ice on the pond but these 60 degrees days have made the ice unreliable to walk on. Installing the boxes may have to wait until we can get our boat in the water now. Colder, more seasonable temperatures are expected for this week so there may still be an opportunity to get them up before the spring migration of waterfowl comes to our area.
