Back in Alpine

The mama duck has a history of setting on her eggs long after they could possibly hatch, so we decided to remove them in hopes the baby duck would get more opportunites to forage.

When the mama duck left the nest I took nearly 2 dozen rotten eggs out. Meanwhile the baby was foraging like crazy, seen here with its head nearly submerged.


  1. That baby is a little cutie.

  2. I couldn't agree more. Hope I can resist the urge to post a gazillion photos of it.
