A FLOCK OF MALLARDS. AS VISITORS Photo by Dr. John C. Phillips "If wild rice can be made to grow, ducks will be sure to come in greater numbers each year, while regular feeding with corn at proper times may prove an additional attraction to whole flocks of ducks during the migration. Tame call-ducks may be introduced, and if there are near-by woods, nest-boxes for the attraction of the wood-ducks should be put up" (see page 337). WILD BLACK DUCK ON A GAME PRESERVE Photo by Herbert K. Job "Mr. Herbert K. Job, State Ornithologist of Connecticut, is having some very interesting experiences on a game preserve in Connecticut, where low-lying areas have been flooded and the wild ducks attracted in increasing numbers each year from miles around" (see page 337).
