Wood Duck and Hooded Merganser trend chart

A couple of late-starting second broods in #67 and #68 unfortunately did not pan out, and we cleaned those boxes. This was a boom-bust year for Wood Duck: lots of eggs laid, but two nests completely failed, including the 31-egg dump in #67. Final summary numbers: 61 hatched/68 laid Hooded Merganser (5 nests), 53 hatched/113 laid Wood Duck (10 nests, plus 2 eggs in a HM nest).

Of the 19 boxes we have deployed, #77 and #8 are ready for replacement.

The detail-voracious can see the raw data worksheet for the project. The historical summary is probably more interesting.
