    I tried and tried to mount on a post around one of my ponds but I have solid rock all the way around the pond and the pond is built on solid rock so very little dirt. So I improvised and decided to try putting it on a floating platform like I did m y Goose boxes and last week had a hen start using it which is super exciting. I think it is a hen pintail but not 100% sure. We rarely get pintails in Central KY which would make it even more special. Here are a couple of pics. Build it and they will come :) This is our first year really going all out on these nesting platforms, we did have one last year for the geese that didn't get used and a bluebird used our wood duck box but so far we are 3 for 3 this year so we are excited. It's a little hard to see in the one pic but it is the hen sitting on her nest
