We have a mallard couple who chose our home to safely hide their nest. When we fist discovered the nest there were three eggs, and the momma mallard is adding 1-2 eggs to her offspring daily. We are now up to 8 eggs!

Our family is having fun watching the little mallard family grow. It doesn't trump the fact that we are having a new baby of our own in a little over a week, but it is still very exciting. Our girls have enjoyed carefully peaking and counting the eggs every day. We love our little mallard family that has adopted our residence!
