Richland Rod and Gun Club webcams are capturing three wood duck hens nesting in boxes this spring in the West Richland area.
One of the hens is sitting on 15 eggs and the other two have started laying eggs.
Hens typically lay one egg a day in the morning for eight to 12 days and then start incubation. During incubation the hen will be on the nest except for a short food and drink break each day near dawn and dusk, according to Dale Schielke, a club member.
Never miss a local story.
The first eggs should hatch about April 26.
