Wood Ducks (Aix sponsa) & Black-bellied Whistling Ducks (Dendrocygna autumnalis)

My experience here in SW Arkansas is that Wood Ducks begin nesting in early to mid-March. As of 3/31/04 I had two boxes with  Wood Duck eggs, one with a nest of another species (yet to be identified,) and my fourth and last box I have not been able to check yet.
