Ornithologically correct for Merganser Ducks!
 
Hooded Mergansers are the only merganser that breeds and winters exclusively in North America. In the past, they were found throughout the continent, including mountainous areas, wherever suitable habitats existed. Today, they are most common in the Great Lakes region and eastern Canada but are also found in the Pacific Northwest. The habitat preferences of Hooded Mergansers are very similar to those of Wood Ducks. They like quiet, shallow, clear-water pools that have sandy or cobblestoned bottoms. They prefer ponds that are near or surrounded by deciduous woods: river bottomlands, small forest pools, millponds, swamps and beaver ponds. Unlike Wood Ducks, Hooded Mergansers have a difficult time finding food in turbulent water, so calm, clear water is highest on their list of habitat requirements. Hooded Mergansers are not likely to nest on large lakes.
 
There are several varieties of ducks that will nest in trees.  One size house has different size entrance holes to accomodate each variety.  This wood duck house has a wire ladder to help ducklings climb out.  A lower side guard protects the nest when the side is open for observation.  The entire side opens for cleaning.  Comes with wood chips for nesting material. Hnadcrafted out of quality eastern white pine. Made in the USA!
