I have all my duck & goose nests out and just in time. I was watching a small group of mallards and the drakes were fighting. I wish I had a fancy video camera cause it's a riot to watch. I have 5 duck nests and 3 goose nests out. I am really excited to see how they do this year I think they all are placed in good locations. Here are a couple of pictures from a couple of weeks ago when we started placing them.

Here is my oldest girl & my dad after we got the first duck nest finished.

This is what my goose nests look like.

We will find out pretty soon if the birds like my nests as much as I do. :)

I have seen that type on several shows on the outdoors channel. Everyone was really pleased with them. Seems fairly easy to make too. They keep out the four footed predators but are still vulnerable to attacks from the sky from hawks and owls. Some people have had this type out for several years and have banded the chicks and have had some of them return the following year.

Someone who saw my goose nests just ordered four of them!! I've never sold them before and I took it as a huge compliment that they called and offered. :)

I have seen a goose nest in a simular one, but it was not as realistic as yours are. We need to get our wood duck boxes out.
