Reunited Again .. for a 5th Year!

I'm a quiet, stealthy little Mamma Duck. 


Yes, I’ve returned to the Christus Victor courtyard for a 5th year … and no one saw me do it.  I won't tell you when I got here, but Daddy Duck and I were spotted on March 31, scoping out the Courtyard.  I was discovered sitting on another nest full of eggs April 16, and I'm hunkered down for the long sit. 

I really like it here in the Christus Victor Courtyard.  They keep me safe, and it's a very quiet spot.  This year, it was really cold when I first arrived, so I’ve found myself a very secluded spot.  In fact, if you don’t know where I am, you probably won’t spot me at all.  I had to protect my eggs from the snow that seemed relentless this spring. 

In case some of you are wondering, a duck sits on her eggs about 4 weeks. Follow my blog here, and I'll keep you posted on this year's baby chicks, let you know when they hatch, and take you along with us when we make the journey through the church, across the road, and to the pond.  It's quite an adventure.  You won't want to miss that.
