- Dr. Eugene Hester, North Carolina State University zoologist, examines some eggs from a wood duck nest which he established at Tarpley's millpond near Wendell. Graduate student Dan Benfield, son of the Rev. and Mrs. W.H. Benfield of Rt. 1, Cleveland, is holding the boat steady. Dr. Hester and graduate students in zoology have established nests which hatch about 1,200 baby wood ducks each year in 11 study areas in Wake and Johnston Counties.
