Mallard Nesting Tube

April 02, 2017  •  2 Comments

Along with wood ducks and American black ducks, mallards are some of the most interesting and comical waterfowl observable in Plainfield City.  A nesting tube is an easy, fun and cheap project to lure a hen to nest. Because of the added safety it affords, this simple structure greatly increases the likelihood a successful brood will make it to adulthood.  The bonus is you can keep an eye on the family throughout the spring season. The photo below was taken on 4/2/17 in Plainfield City and already has a tenant. You can do this!
