Three times this duck has set on the nest. And twice it has ended in the nest being burgled.
But this third time she hid her nest really well, deep in the tall grass.
And now we have babies!
Of many colors!
Phil has flown the coop, but these are his children.
Yesterday, there were five, but this morning when I went out to take pics, there was a cheeping sound in the tall grass near the nest.
After digging around a bit in the grass, I found some down.
And the down moved.
And I pulled this thing out of the grass:
I got it back with the rest.
