Many Oklahomans consider wood ducks the most spectacular species of waterfowl because of their elaborate plumage. Wood ducks nest from late February through July with peak nesting time during March and April. Suitable brood rearing habitat should include shallow areas along banks or in wetlands which contain low, overhanging or fallen woody vegetation. The best lumber to use for wood duck boxes is untreated cedar or pine, preferably in rough- cut condition for a "natural" look.


Position the poles at the water's edge or directly in the water to minimize the duckling' vulnerability when they follow their mother from the nest.
To help protect the nest from predators, especially raccoons and snakes, install a protective shield below the nest box.
Leaving the rough texture on the inside also will allow the duckling to climb up and out of the structure. It is best to mount nest boxes over permanent water at least seven to eight feet above the water surface and at least three feet above the floodmark of the stream or impoundment.


The wire mesh should lead from the bottom to the entry-exit hole to ensure the duckling' exit.
