On my return from a walk yesterday, I startled a female duck that was by the
left side of our outside stairs. I glanced down to see if her mate was also down
there, and was startled to see her nest. As you can see in
the nest contains a full dozen eggs, so she's been one busy little
duck. This seems like a bad place for this, as my comings and goings, as limited
as they are, clearly disturb her. This is also overlooking a parking lot, which
seems like a dangerous place for the littles once they hatch. But I think we're
all just stuck with the situation. We have a light on the porch that shines on
this area at night, so now I need to figure out if it's better to turn that off,
or did she pick that spot because she prefers it that way?
