Continued: A mystery never fully explained: Where are my wood ducks?

So, the mystery as to why most of my wood duck boxes stood empty this spring remains unsolved. The rivers, streams, and ponds in the Brainerd area are full to the brim and have been since the thaw. Hopefully, as Cordts noted, that’s part of the puzzle.

Regardless, later this summer I plan to move a few of my nesting boxes that, for whatever reason, were not occupied the past two springs.

And hope for better luck in 2014.
