She is SO well camoflauged! She did leave the nest once that we know of, and we got to see the tips of at least three pale green eggs underneath all the down and leaves she has pulled together to make a cozy nest. Hopefully in another week or two, we'll have pictures of fuzzy ducklings to share. Pray nothing untoward happens to them via the neighbors' dogs, or my kids will be absolutely crushed!
We also have a fat little bunny whom I believe might be living under the porch steps. I haven't caught him during daylight yet so no photos. It's starting to feel like a zoo around here--we also have a bird's nest for the ninth year running in the wreath on our front porch. We have had one in the porch wreath or in one of the potted hanging plants every year since we moved in to this house when Dan was six months old. There is also a male and female cardinal that seem to be taking a fancy to our pine tree this year.
It always feels like a little spring blessing when one of God's little creatures chooses to make their home with us!
