Hi, we got some nice land not too far from our house and my dad and his buddy are making a large pond tucked back in the woods of the place. When it is done we are going to stock it with fish but we also would like to attract wild ducks to the pond. My dad said that we are located in the flyway so the wild ducks will be around but we need to get them to visit the pond. Last year when we went deer hunting on my dad's friend's place we heard quacking when we were out in the woods. We followed the noise and came to a pond filled with all kinds of beautiful wild ducks swimming around and flying. We had such a good time watching and videoing them that we would like to have ducks at our soon to be pond to watch. Basically I was assigned by my dad to help him find out about any kinds of plants we could plant in or around the pond to attract ducks. My dad said maybe things like wild rice would work, etc. What kind of plants do wild ducks like to nest in? What is something that would be important for us to provide for them? We can't wait to have a finished pond with wild ducks visiting it. I really can't wait to see the wood ducks. It would be cool if they used our pond as a nesting area.
