I have 3 pairs of North American Pintails on my pond, they are all pinioned as well. Do they take to nest boxes or hen houses? Any ideas on what to have for them or what to build?

Much Thanks for any help.

I had three pair and all avoided the nest boxes and chose ground nests under bushes and one out in the open next to the pond in the aviary! Good luck this nesting season!
