Build a duck box

Wood ducks, Barrow’s goldeneyes, common goldeneyes, hooded mergansers, common mergansers and buffleheads are all cavity nesting ducks. They build nests in abandoned woodpecker holes or natural tree cavities caused by disease, fire or lightning. These ducks will also use a constructed nesting box. Here are plans for a nest box that you can build, install and maintain.

Where to place a duck box

Discover the ideal location for your duck box(es) by viewing our example photos.

Duck box location reporting form

January, February and early March mark the time to install new boxes and inspect and maintain those that are established. To report your location(s), please make use of this Reporting Form.
