Local wood ducks are hatching now

The wood duck (Aix sponsa) is the most common duck found both in Hall County and throughout Northeast Georgia. It is also one of the few species of duck that traditionally nests here (in addition to the Hooded Merganser) and is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all American waterfowl. Wood duck hens are incubating eggs and hatching ducklings right now on Lake Lanier, farm ponds and beaver swamps in our local area. Both nesting boxes on my pond in North Hall are occupied right now.

Kammermeyer: Do you have any strange critters?

The forests and fields of Northeast Georgia are full of mystique and strange creatures for many folks including hunters, hikers, birdwatchers, photographers, bikers, horse riders and everyone else who enjoys the outdoors. I know because I spent parts of a 30 year career as a Senior Wildlife Biologist with Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division, Game Management Section answering questions about strange wildlife sightings and investigating some of them.
