In the 2005-2006 bird-breeding season we had a 43.9% success rate. That is 18 out of 41 boxes that had nesting attempts. This percent is higher than last year by 13%, it is still low because most of the boxes were newly installed last year. So the numbers should get better as time goes on. The Wood Duck boxes were the most successful, 9 out of the 18 had nests. I think that the Wood Duck boxes work the best because they are the most useful, almost any bird could nest in it. The Chickadee boxes had 3 nesting attempts and the Wood Pecker boxes had 2 attempts. One of the Wood Duck boxes had 15 un-hatched eggs, which means that the female left before they could hatch. Another Wood Duck box had 4 un-hatched eggs, but about 4 that had hatched. One more Wood Duck box had 5 hatched eggs and 1 un-hatched. Some things that I found interesting was that one of the boxes had an active bee hive and one of the successful boxes was abandoned because of pitch coming out of the tree above the box.
