RRGC Wood Duck Box Cams - Washington

The Richland Rod and Gun Club (RRGC) maintains over 450 wood duck nest boxes that are used by wood ducks, screech owls, and kestrels. Our project attempts to involve youth to the extent possible for education about wild life conservation. Additional live streaming video feeds will be added as new nesting activity is located in boxes that are close enough to power and internet wifi. More information on the RRGC project can be found at rrgcwoodducks.org.

First “jump” of the season for RRGC cameras! Hen #30101 hatched out on 4-28-18; at 8:49 AM on 4-29-18 19 ducklings “jump” over a 9 minute period. My previously posted egg count appears to be off, since 3 eggs remain. I hope to post a recording of the jump video soon on our web site – http://www.rrgcwoodducks.org/in-box-cameras

Switching camera back to hen # 30156 (previously the other hen on split screen).

In case you have not noticed, Owl #30021 in RRGC DuckCam has hatched out a couple of owlets. The male has started to “drop off” mice and other food for the mom and babies that will be in the box until they can fly.

Our first hen is starting to hatch her ducklings. Hen #30101 is sitting on 20 eggs, was originally banded in another near by nest box on 4-7-16. A video of the April 27, 2016 jump can be found on our web page. This years jump should be tomorrow morning (4-29-18), I am predicting between 7 and 9 AM PDT. I will be changing the Wild Wood Ducks broadcast from the split screen to isolate on Hen #30101 . I hope to record the JUMP activities and make it available on the web site. After the JUMP we will resume with… Read more »

The screech owl, on Cam2, is that her mate sitting out the opening watching the outside, and she is sitting on the eggs? And do owls choose their mates for life? So interesting to see the owls in the nesting boxes, because when they look up, it seems like they are looking right at the camera, unlike the ducks, who don’t seem to look up.

Pairs mate for life but will accept a new mate if the previous mate is lost. Glad you are enjoying the live stream.

4-15-18 ~3:30 PM I added another box with camera to the Wild Wood Ducks feed. The view is a side by side split screen of the two boxes with nesting hens. CAM1 (on the left) is hen #30156 sitting on 15 eggs; CAM2 (right) is hen #30101 on 20 eggs. When the first box hatches we will isolate the camera to that box so we can watch the ducklings and the subsequent “jump.”
