We all had a blast this weekend at the NorCal Youth Camp at Rancho Esquon! This three day camp was filled with fun outdoor activities including shooting instruction, archery and duck banding. At the end of the day, these lucky campers even had the opportunity to obtain a California Hunter Education certificate! 🦆🦌

Unreal trail cam footage from the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District of a CWA wood duck box!

The mama duck is diligent and continues to sit on her eggs despite pesky visitors. Visitors caught on camera include raccoon, elk, and starling. Hopefully we see duckling really soon!

Poorly mounted box. Box should tilt forward to help the ducklings get out of the box. That box should obviously been mounted higher.
