Eggs, part two

Those ducks are laughing at me, I just know it.

I was sure that the duck hen wasn't laying yet. Yesterday I noticed a white egg in the corner of the lean-to shed on top of a pile of leaves. I was quite excited when I realized it was a duck egg.

This morning I looked in that same nest spot for another egg, but didn't see one. Then I thought perhaps she's hidden her egg in the leaves like the goose does, so I gingerly stuck my fingers into the huge pile of leaves that the wind has heaped in that corner. Imagine my surprise when I found several... like over a dozen in the hidden nest!!!!! I decided to leave them there for her, since she's been so carefully hiding them from me.
