Duck Nesting Tubes (Revisited)

In early March, Leslie Park Golf Course hosted some 4th and 5th graders from the Ann Arbor Learning Community to help us build some mallard duck nesting tubes.  Early this April we mounted the tubes on some of the water features here at the golf course.

Very cool. Nice to see the kids efforts pay off so soon.

Are bats occupying the bat boxes you installed?

Impressive balancing skills, Scott!
