Very exciting!

First, a picture of the kids holding hands and walking together at the park:)
OK, this morning we took a walk and found 16 duck eggs in a nest on the ground under the shade of a big tree! I don't know much about ducks and eggs, etc. I don't know if anything will come of these eggs, but it sure would be great to see some sweet little ducklings at the park one day soon! Usually in years past we have seen baby ducks, and I have seen eggs at the park before, but never this many! Anyway, I will keep you posted if anything happens! I have my fears that there could be some vandalism. Kind of makes me sick to think of it, but I would not be surprised. This nest of eggs is not well hidden and they are in an area of the park that is well visited. My guess would be that mama duck laid them last night when it was dark and quiet. We were there last evening and took a walk and to my knowledge they were not there then.


  1. I sure hope they're not vadalized. Maybe a call to parks and rec???? would be a good idea.

  2. Cute baby ducks! That seems like quite a lot of eggs in one nest! Hopefully they'll be able to hatch.

  3. Thats some serious overtime if its from one bird!
