  • Wood duck boxes to be set between Lovelock, Rye Patch
    Wednesday, February 26, 2020 1:00 AM
    Pershing County’s wood duck population could explode in the future thanks to a Ducks Unlimited project. Lowry High School shop students in Winnemucca built 35 wood duck nest boxes and sites are needed along the Humboldt River between Lovelock and Rye Patch.
    Ducks Unlimited Chairman-elect Lee Bosch of Winnemucca told Pershing County leaders there are wood ducks in the Lovelock area so this is the best place to start the nest box project. The boxes will be mounted about eye level on poles driven into the ground. The elevated boxes should protect ducklings from predators so the project could increase the wood duck count.

    “It is the cutest picture I've ever seen of him,'' his wife, Daphne Osell, told the Reno Gazette Journal . “You can see it in his face. I think that's what so many people responded to. You can really see and feel how enamored he is of this little animal he's holding.''
