specific to the species.
Common Goldeneyes breed across the forested areas of Canada,
Minnesota, Michigan, Alaska and the northeastern United States. They are most
abundant among lakes of the Canadian boreal forests, especially where lakes or
deep marshes have substantial invertebrate populations. They are cavity nesters
and have a strong homing tendency, often using the same cavity in successive
years. Nests are usually located near a pond, lake, or river, but may be found
in woodlands up to a mile from water. Female
Common Goldeneyes nest in natural tree cavities, abandoned woodpecker holes
or nest boxes. Unable to excavate their own cavities, Goldeneyes are in constant
search for good nesting sites. With a larger entrance hole than the Wood Duck
House, this box comes with wood chips and a ladder to provide an ideal place for
Goldeneyes to lay their eggs. A lower side guard protects the nest when the side
is open for observation. The entire side opens for cleaning. Quality
