Last fall, I bought this beautiful mum to display by our front door.
As it got colder, the mum died, but like any irresponsible and busy resident, I didn’t throw it away, I just let it sit there by our front door and die.
Last week, I looked outside and noticed a small bird’s nest tucked behind the dead mum.
“How exciting!” I thought. But then, I was a bit perplexed. What bird builds its nest on the ground? And what bird has such large eggs? These eggs look almost like chicken eggs!
“Are the neighbors playing a prank on us?” I wondered.
But then, one day last week, Kyle texted me this picture. He had discovered the owner of the nest.
A little momma duck!!!
Every day, the momma duck comes and sits on her eggs. I think she is still laying more eggs because I count 8 eggs so far, and originally I only saw 3 or 4.
Watching the momma duck and her nest has become our daily activity. I hope we get to see little baby ducks walking around in a few weeks!!
Do you have animals where you live? Do you love watching them? I LOVE seeing animals around our place- it makes me so happy!
