Re: New Duck News PS
Mama came back again by herself and sat on the eggs for awhile but she's gone again. My theory is that they have two nests and daddy might have been sitting on the other while she was here. I'm wondering if the nesting coincides with where the sun hits. On a sunny day, there would be no need to sit on the eggs for warming during the day..there would be enough heat.
BTW..I neglected to mention that before the pair took off this morning, when moma left the nest, the male came over to the nest, turned over the eggs and cleared mulch that had fallen in from the sides. Interesting to watch and hope that I'll have a ringside seat if they hatch.
