Phillips County Museum News for July 18, 2018


Summer has arrived with lots of heat! Keep your water bottle close and don’t forget to hydrate.

In 2007 the Milk River Bird Sanctuary located behind the Phillips County Museum and H.G. Robinson House came into existence. Three wood duck nest boxes were placed along the trail and each year they are monitored to check out their success. Here are the results for 2018!

Box #1 hatched 14 eggs and had one unhatched egg inside. Box #2 hatched 11 eggs and Box #3 hatched 10 eggs and one unhatched egg was left in the nest. In May of 2018 another box was added to the trail and will be included in next years total.

Now I know your next question is what type of bird used the nests. Alas, that information was not given to me – stay tuned for a later report. Everyone is invited over to check out the Milk River Bird Sanctuary and remember summer hours for the PC Museum are Monday-Saturday 10-5.
