If you take a walk around the lake, you may notice some new duck boxes along the shoreline. Five duck nesting boxes were built and donated to the Parks Department by Scout Troop 301.

Meadows Place is fortunate to be in the migratory flyway of several species of waterfowl. One in particular is the Black-Bellied Whistling-Duck.

The Black-Bellied Whistling-Duck is a rare sight in the United States. They’re most common in Central and South America. Typically, they are found only in coastal regions in these areas, like Mexico and Panama. However, further in South America, they are greatly condensed throughout much of Brazil and Colombia. These are all year-round populations. The best place to find them in the United States is in the southern regions of Texas during their breeding season. 

They will nest in local rotted trees if they can’t find a proper nesting area near a water source. When nesting so far from the water the mortality rate of the ducklings is extremely low.

We hope to see the Whistling-Ducks using them very soon.
