Nesting season for Wood Duck and Hooded Merganser has started at Huntley Meadows Park. From my report to the team and staff for Sunday:
As we have come to expect, the birds are out there nesting before us! We have three Hooded Merganser eggs in box #3, and one in box #67. We did fresh chips in the 16 boxes. Box #6 is in need of a repair to its door/hinges….
Water gauge: 1.74 (are we still monitoring that gauge)?
Birds of interest: Ring-necked Duck, Bufflehead, Scaup sp., Red-headed Woodpecker
