this is a chickadee house I built a few years ago and several chicks have hatched from this house. I had to however put an extra guard to the entrance to prevent house cats from reaching in and taking chicks. Domestic cats are a real problem to native wildlife and pet owners should always keep cats indoors.

wood duck house 2012
This is a wood duck house I built and installed at a marsh. Wood ducks were almost extinct around 1900 but have since made a recovery due in a large part to artificial nest boxes. I will be building more of these and for other species as well. I am also growing native trees from seed and cleaning local ponds. please go to my facebook page @ www.facebook.com/natureninja1
