We just had a wood duck female fledge out 11 young this past weekend.  It is 
a first for us.   Normally the wd females drive off their young after aboout 
three-four weeks after hatching.  My husband and I think it might be because 
he would throw out a daily scoop of bird seed on the lawn under our other 
feeders.  I then started doing it off the side deck and this really kept 
them around.
