Sweet Mama Brown

A few days ago, we found a duck in the backyard!
Greg saw her, then Piper and I went to see her.  When we were out there, she walked away and hopped the fence.  Just then, 2 male ducks flew off the roof and joined her on the outside of the fence.  We looked around and found a nest buried on the east side of the house, in the garden.  There were ~10-12 eggs in it just waiting to be warmed.  We were worried we’d scared her off, but she’s come back!
 
Piper said “Don’t worry Mommy, the baby ducks are in the Easter eggs.  They’re still growing.”

We learned ducks will often go back to the same spots year after year.  Maybe we’ll see Sweet Mama Brown again!
