We're out of Nest Boxes and Predator Guards!
We're having problems sourcing the predator guards and nest boxes this year. Unfortunately, we've run out of both so at the moment we have none to sell. Check back the future as we're working on the issue.

Hawk Eye Nature Cam
The Prairie Pothole Chapter has been building, maintaining, and documenting wood duck nesting structures for 30 years in West Central Minnesota. While it is fun to check the nest boxes after the chicks have hatched improvements in camera technology now allow you to watch what is happening inside the cedar boxes. The Hawk Eye Nat Camera is an excellent way to keep an eye on the happenings in your nest boxes. The Chapter is working with Birdhouse Spy Cam out of West Linn, Oregon to supply these cameras in Minnesota. You can learn more about the camera's by following the link to Birdhouse spy cam. If you are interested in a camera for your own project please contact LeRoy Dahlke at (320) 796-2787.
