— ANNAPOLIS — Private landowners who manage wood duck nest boxes are asked to participate in a survey to help determine the number of nest boxes managed by private landowners and the role that the boxes play in supporting these birds.

The survey — a cooperative effort of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Maryland Wood Duck Initiative – was developed to determine a statewide estimate of duckling production from nest boxes.

Citizens with wood duck nest boxes on their land can participate by: entering their survey information using DNR’s online form; providing their information by contacting Cliff Brown, Director of MWDI at 703-447-5142 or; or by mail to MWDI, 3021 45th St. NW, Washington, DC 20016.
