Well I have some wood duck boxes up thanks to complementary boxes from DU and was thinking of making some Mallard nesting Tubes. They recommend Flax straw for the tubes because it doesn't break down as easily as other straw and sticks together better due to the straw properties. I have had a hard time finding some but got a line on a bag of seed the other day and will be picking some up to plant this summer. Will build some next winter and hopefully get them out before the following nesting season.

Will post when I get some done... here is a page for those interested in tubes...

Our local Delta Chapter (Nova Delta) makes them up yearly at no cost to who ever would like some - we just ask that they be looked at once in a while for nesting success and for refurbishment.
To see if there is a chapter near you check out www.deltawaterfowl.com
