DIY Mallard Nest Tube

Make a nest for mallard ducks! Cut pieces of PVC pipe, use PVC connectors to make two U-shaped pieces and connect the U-shapes on either end of a longer piece of pipe with a T-connector in the middle to mount the structure on a pole. Feed pieces of wire through each of the U-shaped pipe areas and paint the PVC pipe. Roll the end of a piece of chicken wire into a tube, secure the wire in place, cover the remainder of the chicken wire with a layer of pine needles and continue rolling the wire into a tube. Tie the nest tube onto the PVC basket with the wires from the U-shaped pipes, secure steel pipes in the ideal location for the nest box and mount the nest on the pipe.
