Topics: Conservation Ducks

Over-harvesting in the 18th century combined with loss of natural habitat nearly lead to the extinction of the North American Wood Duck. But thanks to conservation efforts such as the construction and installation of wood duck boxes in wetlands this beautiful bird has had a resurgence. In this segment we tag along with District Wildlife Biologist John Mlcuch as he visits State-maintained duck boxes in Vermont and learn about the nesting habits of the North American "woodie."
