R-U-N-N-O-F-T

I peeked in on the duck nest yesterday and this is what I saw.


I hope I am looking at the remains of at least a couple of hatched eggs (versus some other kind of calamity), having happened a few days ago from the looks of it.  As of early last week, the hen was still sitting on the nest.

So it appears that Mama Mallard and her ducklings have r-u-n-n-o-f-t.

  1. Definitely looks like a hatching to me. You never know- maybe they will come back to say hi!

  2. Perhaps they high tailed out of their to escape that pesky feline. You never know, they might come waddling back!!
