WOOD DUCK HOUSE QUESTIONS

Postby DukMan » Mon Jun 12, 2017 12:43 pm

So I built and placed 4 wood duck houses out on my land... and when I checked them they all had eggs in them...

However, when I checked one there was a dead swallow also in it and there were swallows dive bombing me... I didn't think too much of it at first but now today I see swallows in a different box...

My question is will they drive the wood duck out of a box and prevent a successful nest?

If they can/do... how can I prevent this in the future?

Build them a house. Build them lots of houses.
