On behalf of all members of the Ottawa Duck Club (ODC), greetings!

We are a hardworking, dedicated group of field conservationists involved with passion in the management of a very productive nest box program. Currently we target our efforts on wood ducks, hooded mergansers, buffleheads, eastern bluebirds, American kestrels, eastern screech-owls, black terns and purple martins.

We operate in 3 major sites across our fair city with a special focus on activities in the outstanding Shirley's Bay Crown Game Preserve. These areas are some of the most productive in the National Capital Region, guaranteed to gratify wildlife lovers.

We encourage you to spend a bit of time browsing through our excellent photo gallery. Our newsletter "The Nest Box" is well worth a good read. Our hatching results speak for themselves.

If you love working in the field toward conservation, please consider joining us as a member. And of course invaluable sponsorships (including in-kind donations of supplies, material and equipment) are most welcome.

Tim Desjardins, President
