This pamphlet describes how to make, install and care for inexpensive duck nesting baskets. Ducks have been attracted to these structures in the prairies of eastern North and South Dakota, western Minnesota, and northern Iowa. Nesting structures can help increase the number of local nesting ducks, especially mallards.
