Yesterday we went for a walk and when we came back I was showing Carrie my flowers. When we were done looking, she stepped back quickly, and a huge duck flew out of the bush behind her. It startled her and we all watched as it flew away as fast as it could go. I said, "why was there a duck hiding in our bush?" and Carrie said, "maybe it was laying eggs." I laughed at her as I went to peek in the bush, and sure enough, we had Duck eggs!
The first night we saw only one egg buried in a pile of feathers. We watched most of the night and hoped that the mommy duck would come back, but we didn't see her return.
This morning I was worried about the egg, so I went to check on it and saw four more. It was a whole feathery nest full of eggs.
Mid-morning Andy came in to tell me that he'd checked again and she was back. It was hard to get a good picture because I didn't want to startle her, but you can see her hiding in the daffodils.
