I have installed 3 Wood Duck nests by Lake St. Clair.

They have entered the east box and have brought some grass to go on top of the wood chips, that I put there.

She lays 1 egg each day. We have around 10 eggs.

The female will not sit on the eggs until all the eggs have been laid.

Apparently this is unique in evolution.
