Just waiting....continues

Just an update on the nest.  Not sure what is going on but when I returned to work Monday the mother was sitting on the nest so I was not sure what, if any progress was taking place.  When I checked in Tuesday the nest appeared to be empty however later in the day there were only 2 eggs. Now the really sad part when I left work last night.....the nest was empty and momma duck was just hanging out. 

Now I don't believe there are any snakes or lizards during the day which is a question my daughter has asked me; if that were the case I believe there would a lot of screaming women in the building.  It gives me the creeps just thinking about it. 

So when I go in today I will check it out again.  Maybe she really covers them up when she waddles away to look for food or go to the pond behind the building for a dip.  So stay tuned to this unusually twist. 

As always, have a great day!

  1. OH NO!!! -- I wish I'd read this post before I commented on the last one. So sad. I know this happens, but I was thinking that they'd be OK tucked into that safe corner. Darn.

At peace...

It is amazing what a calming feeling being near or on the water has, at least for me.  It is peaceful, it removes whatever I had on my mind ...
